One of Taffy’s favorite things to do these days is to get onto the bookshelf in my office window, meow at me until I join her, and proceed to engage in “Big Cats Together”.

She likes when I have my arthritis half gloves on, which seem to make her think I have paws. She reaches out her face and gives my fingers the Cat Face Rub.

Dec 2006 — looking back to a very young Taffy

Deborah Camp recently asked me if we had any kitten photos of Taffy. Those below are all we have. They were taken by her foster mom, and they were really small and poor quality. Bruce “tweaked” them in Photoshop to try to improve them generally.

So here you go, Taffy in December of 2006.

My towel. Photo by Louise Peacock

July 16, 2022. What is mine, is mine!

Taffy, for some reason known only to herself, likes to sit on a folded up towel on the end of the bed.

She likes it to be on the end of the bed, and preferably at least one of the brushes needs to be nearby.
