Kitty Star of the Week for March 25 - 31, 2001.

This week our featured cat is Purry. Purry's human writes:

"When I was 12 (1992), my mom took me to the humane society to pick out a cat. I had been looking through cat books for months, deciding what breed I wanted, not understanding that this wouldn't really come up in picking a cat from the pound. When we first got there I saw an orange striped kitty, but when I picked it up it seemed so distressed, so I picked up a white kitty with gray spots. He was so loving and happy to be held. He purred louder than any cat I had ever heard, which sold me on him, and I decided to name him Purry (being 12, and having a grandfather named Perry, this seemed clever!)."

Purry was 6 months old when he was adopted. Since then he's been through many mishaps, including getting his paw stung by a wasp, getting hit by a car, and fighting an opossum. Amazingly he's survived it all! He's always been a very affectionate and non-demanding friend, and never minded if his person cried on him a little. He would even lick the tears off of his human's face.
