Champ - Puglia Puss at Puglia Pooches

Champ

Champ and his brother Mizzy were feral cats from a few roads away from us. We used to feed them outside our gate to start with. They then started venturing in. Mizzy came in and made himself at home, but he would not let Champ in. He would chase him off. We continued to feed…

Mizzy - Puglia Puss at Puglia Pooches

Mizzy

Mizzy arrived in 2018. He was a feral cat, there were plenty of them two roads away from us. First of all, he just came for food, we used to feed him and his brother outside of our gate. It’s impossible not to feed a hungry animal. He gradually got braver and braver and came…

Trilly

In September 2011, we went to see Abbie a pup we had been asked to take as she was not doing so good. She belonged to an elderly couple, who were overrun with dogs and cats. She begged me to take a kitten as well, so I chose Trilly. She wasn’t well either and so…

Tiggy, a Puglia Puss Cat, rescued at two weeks old

Tiggy and Micia

Come and say hello to Tiggy. He and Micia are brother and sister, and they were abandoned outside of my very good friend Debbie’s house in early June 2009 when they were just a couple of weeks old. As Debbie already had over 20 cats and no experience with such tiny kittens, she asked if…

Felix the Cat with Dottie

Felix

Meet Felix, we called him Felix because that is who he looks like. I’m happy to start this post by saying that Felix is still very much with us, no rainbow heart on his photo! Late in 2008, Mino found him by the side of the road, a tiny kitten, as good as dead. He…
