This is Buffy, the youngest member of the Rude Ranch family and an expert feather killer.
Buffy found her way to the Rude Ranch in much the same way as most of our other pets she
was rescued. Buffy started out as one of a litter of four kittens that were born somewhere in
Baltimore City, Md around the beginning of December, 1999. Although the kittens had started
out in someone's home. They had been thrown out of the house to survive on their own. Buffy
was the first of the kittens caught. (Her sisters, Faith and Charity have also been caught while
efforts are underway to catch the fourth kitten, Hope) She was promptly taken to the vet for
blood tests, vaccinations and spaying. She was then to be relayed to the Rude Ranch as a foster
Apparently Buffy had a couple of adventures on her way to us. The couple that picked her up
from the vet were getting ready to move her to another car when the carrier she was in fell apart.
She led the couple on a merry chase through the entire neighborhood. Buffy eventually made her
way to the ranch where everyone who met her fell in love with her. After about 5 minutes of
debating, Bob and Kathy decided to make her cat #10 at the ranch.
Buffy settled into life at the Rude Ranch quickly. She quickly learned the "Bed mouse" game
and its corrallary, "Pounce on the Dog" from her brother Goldie. She also picked up excellent
feather chasing techniques from Bones. Ghost also resumed her role as "chief kitten sitter". Tia
quickly explained who was in charge and Buffy seemed ok with that, although we still think her
and Ghost are secretly plotting to overthrow the world.
