Purr 'n' Fur
There are numerous cat websites, but
Approaching our 10th anniversary, 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 Summer 2013 batch delayed due to technical issues has been completed.
We'll be back with more late December and into January

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).
