Life Story for
Pudge Foley, passed away on 10 December 2017. Pudge was a Norwegian Forest Cat who was very proud of his heritage. Pudge is survived by his dad and best friend, Timm, his mom Natalia, his frenemy Freddie Mercury, his penguin Francis, and numerous other human family and friends.
Pudge came into his home by way of Timm’s manager in September of 2000, when he was about 1 year old. Little did anyone know at the time that Pudge would become Timm’s best friend and closest ally. Pudge’s favorite activities in his youth included running at top speed around the 3rd floor gutter of a Victorian home, chasing his friend Tobey and his brother Fritz, and messing with his ferret friend Diesel. Whenever Pudge was lonely he would carry his friend Francis the penguin in his mouth and meow until he found a human to love him.
In his later years Pudge enjoyed sleeping, and was fond of changing his sleeping spot once a week. He also enjoyed playing with string until and spooning with his dad.Pudge was also known for eating all of the treats, getting all the love, trying to escape to the great outdoors, watching people shower, not taking crap from anybody, and waking everyone up at 5 a.m. because he wanted water… or food… or just to say hello. He always liked going for a car ride, even if it meant seeing the vet. Pudge had his own set of stairs to climb up into bed and cuddle, and loved if someone left some boxes so he could climb up into a window to sit and enjoy the breeze, and he really loved when his people would take him out to explore the yard.
We will miss you Pudgey. Thank you for being the most amazing kitty and friend for 17 years, we love you, we hope you are sniffing all the plants in the sun and enjoying the breeze with Fritzy.
