TUFFY, MY LITTLE HERO CAT
By Kay Marie
I got Tuffy when she was about two months old but only weighed twelve ounces. Her mother had been hit by a car, and my friend found her outside his bedroom window, yelling her head off. She couldn’t hold her head up so she was bottle-fed and learned how to use the litter box. She is small and compact but really has a temper, especially if there is stray cat walking across her yard or down the walkway.
On July 13th, 2010, some teens broke into my apartment while I was asleep. Tuffy was voicing her displeasure. I thought it was just another stray cat, even when I heard noises in the living room. I just thought the cats were bumping against the window.
Then Tuffy’s cries took a new tone. When I went to get out of bed, an intruder confronted me in my bedroom. I yelled, and he ran off. Tuffy was still snarling and crying from under the stove. Now I will listen to her more closely when she goes on a little rampage.
Tuffy has two older brothers, Apache and Blackfoot, whom she adores. Tuffy is my little hero.
