Anna says: I met Snugglemuffin when he was rescued by the owner of the shelter I volunteer for, Save-A-Pet, in Port Jefferson Station, NY. Snugglemuffin had been found crying, all alone, in a closet in an abandoned house. When he was brought into the shelter, shivering in the corner of a gigantic cat carrier, I couldn't bear to leave him in there. And he needed a cuddle. I held him, fed him, loved him, and photographed him until his assigned foster mother arrived at the shelter a few hours later. And it was my great honor to feed him his first bottle of KMR (Kitten Milk Replacement). It took him a while to get the hang of this new milk-delivery system, but he was a very enthusiastic about learning. The poor baby was so hungry.

Snugglemuffin stayed with his foster family until was about three months old. Then he was neutered, put up for adoption, and lucky adopted by a wonderful woman who may or may not post a comment giving an update on this little beauty. * hint hint * ;-)

I think that is the cutest picture ever! Snugglemuffin says it all. The lucky person who adopted him has an angel for a friend.

Yes, this is my Snugglemuffin aka Benny--the dearest and most beautiful cat at one and a half years I have ever had. He still loves to hug and kiss me. Some people have said it is too much affection, but I think they are just jealous! Once a Snugglemuffin, always a snugglemuffin. He is also sweet with his adopted brother Pixel and they love to play bouncy ball together. In other words, we are happy campers. I would send photos if I could attach them here, but I don't know how to do it.

I'm so glad to hear Natthecat is Snugglemuffin/Benny's new Mom. I remember the exchange that led to the adoption. Benny is soooo cute in these photos and the ones of him on the bottle are extra precious. I bet he's a beautiful cat now.

One of my favorite Daily Kitties of all time. Have gone through the comments of the original post again, thank you NattheCat for pouncing on this sweetie. I see he's been with you since end July of last year. Was he in foster care from May to July ? Snuggles and kisses to adorable BennyMuffin.

@Koala10--Yes, Benny was very sick with coccidia, an intestinal parasite, and could not gain the proper weight for neutering. Alas, the weight issue is now resolved. Benny is over 15lbs, and the vet has scolded me for indulging him. But he is so gorgeous and radiant with health. He has cat herpes, so he gets lysine twice a day in pill pockets. He is my baby and I want him happy.

Such an adorable little kitten! Pretty markings. I am so pleased to hear he is still with a loving family and just as adored as he was here! It would be great if we could see some updated photos of him now.
