I found this sweet shot of Stuffed with other saved photos and can't imagine why I didn't share it before. It is from February 2012. He looks like a kitten here but was around thirteen years old at the time. Could he be any more adorable!?! I can't imagine how he could have been any cuter when he actually was a kitten. ♥ (He was a few years old already when Mike saw him for the first time, and he was around eight when I met him.)
Ohhh, my heart, he's the dearest, sweetest thing.
'Love, love, love this little puffball. The perfectly-curled tufts of white fur that stick out of his ears! The half-black/half-white face! He's perfectly designed, a work-of-art of an animal.
The alternating black-white-black-white of his body! And that he holds himself like this while he sleeps! ♥
Truly like a favorite stuffed animal come-to-life, he's just such a precious little soul. (And the pink toes. . . ! Gah!) Sweet Stuffed. ♥
