Here is Fluffalo, rhymes with bison. He stays around the house, and patrols the greens and herb gardens.
An extraordinarily gentle creature, he is, nonetheless, our best mouser. and, thankfully, seems to have lost his desire to hunt birds.
He really likes people, in a very kitten-like way, but often cowers when approached. Get down on his level, and he warms up. It isn’t really that he’s all that timid – he stood up to a rattlesnake (and survived the bite, I’m not sure I can say the same about the snake) – but I think the height of people looming over him makes his nervous.
I’m pretty sure Fluffalo had a more dignified name once upon a time, but no one can seem to recall it. He’s just Fluffalo.
Fluffalo was a rescue kitten. Our thanks to Brad and Linda Briske for finding him for us.
