Good morning my fine fellows and ladies. My name is Capt. Puff "Puffpants" McPufferson, but you may call me Puff. If I may, let me have a few minutes of you time to tell you about myself.
I was born in Ohio, in the Cleveland area, and my first human mom found me in her front yard when I was a wee fluffball of a kitten. She already had the kitten siblings Ginger, Panda, and Spunky in her home (they were born under her deck). If you'll notice the markings of my face, my nose in particular, I have what mom calls a "koala nose" just like Ginger, Panda, and Spunky. I am also the same age as them. Although I'm not from their litter, my current mom thinks we all have the same daddy. They are all short furred "cow cats", I am a long furred grayish-brown and white tabby. The other things the four of us have in common is our size and purrs. We are all big kitties with very loud, rumbling purrs.
The picture above was taken in July 2007. That was one month after I moved from Ohio to Kentucky to live with my new mom. Our first mom was moving in with her boyfriend and he didn't want us. She chose him over us. We don't understand it either and we don't know if they are still together. The boyfriend even had the nerve to ask if they could take me back six months after giving me away. They answer, obviously, was a resounding NO!
I love my forever home. I get lots of love and snuggles and brushies. I also get food and treats. It's a good deal for me. I'm long, and I weigh in at close to 17 lbs. Mom thought I might have some Maine Coon in my genes, but I think I'm just a big ol' cat!
I was actually named Puff Daddy by my first mom. My new mom thought about giving me a new name, but I told her that I was Capt. Puff McPufferson. Mom's dear friend, our Aunt Torchy, started calling me Puffypants and the nickname stuck, much to my chagrin.
I am Captain of the steam powered airship Feline Fantasy. I fly around the world taking in all of the magnificent sights!
Now, if you'll please excuse me, I'm off on another grand adventure!
