Michael says: We acquired Puff one cold and rainy Saturday in Phoenix. My boys and I went to visit friends and on the way home we decided to stop at the new Hobby Lobby to look for a remote-controlled boat. The store is in a big strip mall with lots of parking spaces. As we were walking into the store, we saw this tiny kitten in the parking lot. It looked like it had been run over and was not moving, and we assumed it must be dead. I told my boys that we would go into the store and look to see if it was still there when we came out. When we came out of the store the kitten was not where it had been. We were back in the car ready to leave when my middle son spotted it on a parking berm. Someone had apparently moved it. My son got out of the car to take a closer look, and he screamed, "I see the kitten moving!" My boys wanted to know what we could do to help it. I told them to pick it up and I would call my friend Dr. Robert Hatch, the local vet, to see what we should do. Dr. Hatch explained how to bottle-feed the kitten and nurse it back to health. The first few days he just slept and ate. He could not walk or stand up and we thought that he might have some injuries. But Dr. Hatch came by to check on him and said that all was fine. The kitten quickly became a very aggressive eater, chewing through several bottle nipples. He must have developed these eating habits during his days on the streets. We named him Puff after the character in the children's pre-primers featuring Sally, Dick, and Jane because he looked just the kitten from the stories. Puff is now a happy member of our household and gets to see Dr. Hatch on a regular basis.

Huge pupils in most photos...I associate those in cats with alarm or alertness. I hope this handsome boy has been fixed so that he won't have offspring who are left on the street the ways he was.

So hard to pick a favourite! Lucky little Puff, to have found you and lucky you to have found Puff. He's gorgeous.
All my cats have been fixed and depending on the light, they often have large pupils - I've never heard it being associated with alarm or alertness, just light!

Puffy has grown in a handsome cat now. He is doing well and still thinks the Bulldog is his mother.

What a doll.

I guess not only the kids learned the lesson. They insist on stopping and seeing how to help.

Awww, what a great story with a happy outcome! Our bottle-fed Moo, Dec. 6th, 2011 kitten, had a similar story. Such a cutie, how lucky you both are to have found each other!

Since Puff looks like a copy of my adored Benny, how could I not love him on sight! Thank you for telling us his backstory and I am glad you have such thoughtful children. Your doggie is so sweet and patient, too.

We just lost our wonderful orange Girl. Puff started my day with a smile. Nasty smug comments have no place here. These are stories of hope and joy. Those big eyes are big kitten eyes. Of course he will be snipped and will - I hope - live a long and happy life. Kittens don't need sour grapes.

I love this tale of Puff and his escape from the shopping center. It made a very rainy day here much more tolerable, The photos are so cute, especially the ones with the
" milky" mouth. Puff is a really lucky cattie to have you and your family . Thanks for sharing.

So many adorable photos - too hard to choose a best one. Wonderful story and I bet little Puff is quite the snuggler after all the bottle feeding. He's about as sweet as sweet could ever be.

He looks totally spaced out in this picture - like he is in some kind of bottle-feeding trance :)
