The temperatures have begun to drop on the Amalfi Coast, especially at night with the cold north winds blowing down the valleys along the Lattari Mountains. It’s time of year for throwing an extra blanket on the bed and pulling out the heavy winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves. Our cats have been busy getting their winter coats ready, too. This is also the time of year when Puffy – the fluffy mascot that makes his way into the pages of this blog – truly earns his name. Here’s what he looked like toward the end of August:

You might even wonder how this big-eared cat ended up with a name like Puffy. That is, until you see him with his winter coat.

That’s better! Now he’s ready to make it through the cold and blustery winter days – and even the occasional snow! Although this is likely what Puffy will do all winter long. (Can you blame him?)

Warm wishes from the Amalfi Coast!

    That is amazing! He looks like a different breed of cat from one photo to the next. And in the spring you’ll be wearing all that extra fur on your clothes from his shedding! He is truly beautiful.

    Just a dog (a beautiful German Shepherd) but I miss cats! My hubby is allergic to the sweet fluffy things.

  • He is too cute for words!! I can’t get over the changes between the first and the last pictures.

    I’m allergic to cats. It bums me out as I like them much more than I like dogs.
