“My name is Fuzz and I am a 2-year-old, gray long-haired tabby cat. I live in the country with my parents, Johnny and Stacey Jones. My human sister-in-law, Alaina, and brother Zane, found me as a tiny kitten beside the driveway one cold, wet night. I was in rough shape and Dad said I was so ugly I would gap lightening. Mom didn’t think I would make it through the night, but fed me and made me a bed in the bathroom. They didn’t have a lot of faith in my survival or appearance and named me after the cat from the movie “Sweet Home Alabama” You know, the one with dynamite tied to its back that ran into the bank when it blew up. Not only did I prove them all wrong and survive, but I also turned into the most beautiful cat ever and I have Mom trained to give me treats when I stand up.”

Fuzz has four older cat brothers, but according to the Joneses, he is the boss. When his human sister comes home from college to visit, Fuzz gets jealous when he doesn’t get as much attention as he wants and tries to put his big sister in her place with the occasional slap. Fuzz is a spoiled feline that is known to be a bit of a bully, which can get him into trouble with his mom. Fuzz loves to snuggle up close when it is bedtime and he does not take into account personal space or his mom’s need to breathe
