Naked Adieu

Sphynx cat dressed like a Vampire
I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the passing of a naked legend.

Nofuratu, a Sphynx of the blog and FaceBook "Adventures of a Naked Cat" passed away on Saturday, October y, 2017. Nofuratu was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM).  The blog about Nofuratu could have been an interesting read just for the information about treating a cat with HCM.  But rather than focus on the struggle, Nofurau's pet parents chose to show the joy of living with this amazing cat.

When Moshe Moshi first came into my life, I had Jake and Maus for about 18 months.  I did not at that time have a stroller or made a habit of taking the cats outside to walk.  It was only after seeing Nofuratu post on the beach and at conventions did I gather the courage to take the cats around town with me.  Though I was a blogger before I went cat crazy, Nofuratu's example was directly responsible for the blog you read today.

I am immensely grateful to Nofuratu's pet parents sharing their naked kid with me and the rest of the internet.  Their fight to provide Nofur, Vlad, Reinfield and Count happy lives shows in every post.

I will miss you. See you on the other side.


  1. Oh, I'm sorry about your furr-iend. It sounds like he was an amazing kitty. I wish I had known him. Mew Mew & purrs.

    1. Nofuratu will still have an online presence on FaceBook. Housemates Vlad, Count, and Reinfield will carry on the good work of Nofuratu. They raised money for cat rescue, HCM clinics and other pet and people causes. Look for Nofuratu McKnight on FaceBook.

  2. He was one of our first loves back in the days before Facebook. We will miss him and his travels. Xoxo
