Hello I am Spaz...
One of Mogwai's Mafia, remember me? Stripe's punchbag! I was
reading some of the purr letters on your page and I just wanted
to add my piece. When I was little, Slof took me and my sister
in to find us new homes - my mum lived in a bad area, although
the humans we lived with were great, so they asked Slof to find
us homes in a better area. Slof, being Slof, started to get rather
attached to us, and eventually chose to keep me on - my mum's
family decided to keep my sister, so we still smell each other
on our humans!
What made Slof keep me and not my very pretty sister - she looks
like me but with long hair - well, my sister (with the unfortunate
name of Shitty - no, don't ask!) has never ever purred! It is
not that she is unhappy, or put out with her name, she just never
purrs - I don't think she knows how.
I've seen Slof in action with local cats - this human could make
a dog purr! All the local furries think Slof is a god, it's like
watching the pied piper with all the pussies following along whenever
Slof goes for a walk! Yet, not even this great ability could make
Shitty purr! Slof sees her every Christmas and feeds her turkey
scraps, but she has still never purred - ever.
All I can say to all you chaps who think excessive purring is
a problem - live it, and purr for my poor silent sister - she
doesn't meow either! Her daughter, the unfortunate little Blacken,
purred always and meowed much, as does her son, Blacken's brother,
