My Angel Pal of the Week is a pawsome angel - meet Rufus, or as I like to call him up here at the bridge - Foofernutter! Rufus sure had some funny nicknames: Mwarky Mwark and the Chunky Bunch, Little Bunny Foo Foo, Fat Boy Slim, and Stinky McStinkbutt are a few of them!

My Mawmee had an aunt who was named Phyllis. When she was growing up, she couldn't pronounce it, so she called her Foo-Foo or Foof. That lady was my former Mommy. So, Rufus is a special pal to me because of his Foo Foo nicknames!

Rufus has been an angel for two years this month - on the 17th. He had the nasty C just like me. He fought it for 2 years, and was in remission for a little while. Rufus was only 11 when he came to the bridge.

Rufus was just a kitten when he came to his forever home. His brother was adopted with him, but he became ill and had to go be a kitty angel. So, his Mommy got another kitten so that Rufus would have a pal growing up - that would be Bobcat!

Bobcat is having some health issues, so when you stop by Rufus' page to ask him to be friends, be sure to throw some purrs Bobcat's way.

Rufus' Momma was given a nice Christmas present this year when she found some long forgotten pictures of Rufus and Bobcat as little kitties. They were both super cute as little kittens. Be sure to check out those pictures.

When I met Rufus up here at the bridge, I told him he had a cool accent. He is from Boston. He said my southern accent was pretty pawsome too.

Rufus' Momma did a very nice thing when I became an angel. She made a donation to the MSPCA in my memory. Thank you, Rufus, for being a pawsome Angel Pal of the Week.

Now, let's go sprinkle some healing angel dust down on Bobcat!

Good choice Calvin! Rufus is in the Lymphoma group with me and was one of the first Catsters who reached out to me when I was first diagnosed. He was has been a wonderful source of encouragement and support.

I'll make sure to send some purrs Bobcat's way.

Thanks for all you do Calvin!

I am so lucky to have Rufus as a guardian angel. And the kitten pictures his momma has found are absolutely adorable. Me and my brofurs are purring for Bobcat.

I asked Rufus to be my furiend yesterday. What an elegant, lovely name he has (and I'm not talking about Foo-Foo, Calvin). Thanks for making him your APOTW so I could learn more about this wonderful kitty and his family.
