Angela Lee
Bude, Mo

This is my baby, Casper Todd. He loves to snuggle with his crocheted blankies that his Nana made with TLC especially for him. Casper Todd was very sick in 2009 with feline demodicosis, so his blankies comforted him and kept him warm during his skin treatments.

Buddy and Baily
Lynne Hesselbacher
Phoenixville, Penn.

Buddy and Baily are brother and sister – they came home together and remain together. Snuggling is something they do best, especially in colder weather. Sometimes they are so intertwined I can’t tell who is who.

Tiger and Spunky
Carol Marshall
Fortescue, N.J.

Tiger and Spunky snuggle whenever they are not on the laps of their humans. It is an after-dinner routine. They take turns bathing each other then settle down together. These two truly love each other.

Morty and Lil’ Stan
George Ricci
Orlando, Fla.

Morty (the gray cat) was rescued at 4 weeks of age after losing his tail, one eye and a piece of his nose to a raccoon attack. The orange tabby is Lil’ Stan, who was found at 3 weeks of age all alone and covered with fleas. They are now best pals.

Jeannie Menor
Lakewood, Colo

This is Bombay with one of his many snuggle toys. He has rheumatoid arthritis, so he does not get around much. We make sure he has snuggle buddies all over the house and lots of cat beds. He gets acupuncture and laser treatments once a week and is doing well with those to help him keep his mobility. He is a very sweet and special boy.

Leo and Lucas
Karen Coppola
Meriden, Conn.

Leo and Lucas are 3-year-old brothers and best friends. They spend their time chasing each other, eating together and lying in their favorite window seat. They were rescued three years ago and have not stopped snuggling since.

Amber Eyes and Romeo
Julie Kniffen
Carson City, Nev.

My cat buddies are Amber Eyes and Romeo. They liked each other from their very first meeting. Romeo was about 6 months old when I brought him home, and Amber started grooming him immediately. They love to chase each other the length of the house and are often found sleeping together in the winter months.

Peek and Essie
Kerry Bateman
Goose Creek, S.C.

Peek and Essie love to snuggle. We adopted Peek to be a friend to our first cat, Toonces, but found that she didn’t care for other cats. Peek was lonely, so we adopted Essie for him, and they are two peas in a pod. Toonces is happy to watch them play.

Rudy and Gandalf
Marcie McGrew
Portland, Ore.

I adopted Rudy in 2006. He was timid, but living with his kitty mates has proven to be very therapeutic for him. He has learned how to live and be trusting and social with me. Rudy is now 6 years old and loves snuggling up with his kitty pals.

Scout and Gizmo look like beautiful bookends as they cuddle together on the bed.

Sparky and Annie
Joan Francis
Escanaba, Mich.

Sparky likes to take care of the other cats and take naps with them. His favorite snuggle buddy is Annie.
