Purr 'n' Fur, a site for cat lovers


Purr 'n' Fur
is all about cats

There are numerous cat websites, but
we think cat lovers will agree there's
no such thing as too many cats!


Into our eleventh year, Purr 'n' Fur continues to grow, with a wide selection of different sections and articles for the enjoyment of cat lovers.
The site is added to three times a year, normally in spring, summer and winter, with new material, updates and amendments.
The Spring 2014 batch has been completed.

Smiling Cats bar

Our featured feline: the beautiful marmalade character taking pride of place here on our home page was a Dutch kitten called Dabbe, belonging to colleagues who worked at the same college as I was in eastern Holland. Trust a cat to find the sunniest spot! — and his stripes contrasted beautifully with the duvet he was sitting on (Dec 1989).
