Fluffy was a long-haired grey cat that my grandmother rescued from abuse. Grandma's next door neighbor had children, and they got a kitten. A child was seen beating her with a chain, hooking a chain around her neck, and dragging her from a bike down the streets - much too fast for a kitten to keep up. Then they were spotted shutting her up in a shed with no food or water. Two days had passed, and she was crying for food and water. My grandmother went in their shed, picked her up and took her home. They confronted her, saying she had no right to take their children's kitten, but she said she didn't care. She wasn't going to let them harm her again.
Not many photos exist of Fluffy, as she was so traumatized by the abuse, she rarely came out around people, other than to get food, water and use the litter box. Fluffy spent 99% of her life hiding under a bed. Every now and then, she would go out and sit or lay by Tiger, but if a human was around, she didn't stay very long.
Fluffy lived about 22-23 years. She was going blind, she was stiff with arthritis, and she resembled a swayback horse, the last couple of years. Grandma got medication from the vet for her arthritis, but giving her the pill daily seemed to upset and scare her more than the arthritis seemed to bother her, so she stopped giving it to her. She started having severe kidney problems the last few months of her life, and the vet said it was kidney failure due to her advanced age. She was put to sleep, and buried in the pet cemetery.
Specifically: Fluffy was buried in the Dodge City Vet. cemetery
