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!


Find us on Facebook

Our site has gone into 'hibernation',
although our Facebook page will remain active as usual.

The vast amount of information here about cats remains available for reference purposes — see the contents list below — and occasional, irregular updates may be possible, but after more than 15 years and with changing circumstances we've decided we can no longer regularly work on the site.

We hope visitors will continue to enjoy it and, if you have any comments, questions or news, do submit them (); they will be answered. Our warm thanks go to all who have helped and supported us during these past years.

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).
