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 will stay with his foster family until he's two to three months old, or however long it takes for him to weigh three pounds. Then he will be neutered and put up for adoption, and at some point along the way he will get a more dignified name. Snugglemuffin isn't his official name -- his foster family will choose that -- but I had to call him something while I spent the afternoon with him, and I think "Snugglemuffin" describes him perfectly. He's cuteness personified! He's a good, strong, determined kitten, and I think he's going to live long, prosper, and make some lucky person an excellent pet.

CUTENESS OVERLOAD ALERT!!! As I pick myself up off the floor again from seeing a super adorable Snugglemuffin. How I would have loved to adopt this little boy. He looks so mellow and sweet with the cutest face. I surely hope he found the most loving forever home and is being cherished ever after:)

Yes, Snugglemuffin is now Benny and 7 years old. He is my dearest, most loving friend and companion. The only problem, I can't operate a camera (visual and severe steadiness difficulties), but he has become my love for life. He is a huge cat, Big Ben, and just gorgeous. Still a cuddler!

Tried uploading a photo from my girlfriend, but. . . . no go. Still, try to take my word for it, Benny is the best.

Thanks, GMK, for this surprise this morning. I did adopt Snugglemuffin/Benny b/c of your site and Save A Pet in 2010. No refund requested!

Natthecat you are a very lucky lady to have snapped up this beauty! I am so glad he belongs to someone on GMK...kind of gives it a family feeling. I don't think I could have let him go if I fostered him and my first thought when I saw him is I would have foster named him Buff Puff LOL. Many more happy healthy years to you and Benny. Oh, your not the only one with picture upload problems....I have them too. LOL.

So glad I came back to look at Snugglemuffin (aka Ben) as I found out he was adopted by Natthecat:) He is indeed part of the GMK family and most importantly has a loving home where he is loved and cherished. I hope you find a way to upload a photo as I'd love to see what he looks like now. Give that handsome feline fella a belly rub and treat for me.

Love, love, love!! What a wonderful afternoon the two of you had. Snugglemuffin is cuteness incarnate. Thank you for taking the time to help him feel better about this world and his situation in it. He was so lucky to have met you that day. Keep up the good work!
