One of my greatest blessings in life comes in the form of five furry friends I’ve made on the farm over the course of the last year and a half – the Cats of Starksboro. These kitties have been the center of my universe, and one of my saddest realizations is that unless I decide to stay in Vermont forever, I’ll have to part ways with my adoptive babies. I could bore you with story after story about each of them, but instead, I thought it’d be even better if I shared their online dating profiles. Maybe, one day, someone else will fall in love with them as much as I have and take care of them forever. Let’s get into it!
Also Known As: Mr. Fu (formal and short for Grapefruit), Tubi Boy

Occupation: Mindfulness Coach, Surf Teacher
Astrological Sign: Leo

What Else To Know About Me
My voice sounds rich and raspy, like Phil Collins.
Everyone just really likes me for some reason…cats like to cuddle with me, kittens like to play with me, humans like to pet me. I’m too blessed to be stressed.
I’m the softest and fluffiest of my pack, and I’m the color of a pumpkin spice latte.
Also Known As: Mrs. Fu (Mr. Fu’s wife), Tubi Girl, Ford F150
Age: 3 or 4
Occupation: White House Correspondent
Astrological Sign: Capricorn
Body Type – Petite, but thick in all the right places. Brown with spots and stripes, with a white scarf.
What Else To Know About Me
I purr louder than everyone else because I like to show when I’m enjoying myself.
I’ve learned from my humans’ sleeping arrangements that blankets are warm and comfy, and now I crawl under blankets to nap, too. I LOVE blankets.
I’ve become quite close to my humans, and now enjoy getting my daily pets and massages. Sometimes, if you annoy me and I’ve had a bad morning, I will slap you once. Other times, if you don’t give me enough attention, I will disrupt your Zoom meetings. I’m cute but will fight for what’s right.
Also Known As: Baby Fu (Mr. Fu’s young padawan), Baby Bubs
Age: forever 2
Occupation: Kindergartener, with dreams of being a garbage collector
Astrological Sign: Sagittarius
Body Type: Perpetual kitten, teeny and petite. White with gray patches.
What Else To Know About Me:
I will eat everyone else’s food. I eat more than everyone even though I am the smallest.
My natural voice sounds like a crying baby, even when I am happy.
I have used up 3 of my 9 lives already, even though I am the youngest! My cat dad found me once stuck in a hop baler, and another time in a dusty old attic. Both times, my cat mom noticed that I didn’t show up from breakfast (I ALWAYS show up for breakfast), and that’s how they knew to look for me.
Sometimes, I like to dip my paws in the water bowl. It’s fun!
Also Known As: Big Boy, Fat Joseph
Occupation: Mall Cop
Astrological Sign: Aries
Body Type: Chunky, absolute unit. White with brown and gray patches in unexpected places. Low-rider belly, more-to-love.
What Else To Know About Meanie:
I’m a big dude who goes after what I want, whether that’s a comfy spot to roll around, other people’s kibble, or scritches. I’m not mean. I’m just misunderstood, like a teenager.
I lift at the gym so I’ve got the largest body. Volunteer sheriff’s duty also keeps me active. Unfortunately, my voice never adjusted… hey, you know the Weekend has a high voice too and he’s still a man’s man.
I’m insecure sometimes… I want to be the alpha but Grapefruit’s always strutting around with this fluffy tail. I’m waiting for my time to shine.
I enjoy sitting on people.
Also Known As: Bubi Girl, Pregnant Lady
Occupation: Private Investigator
Astrological Sign: Taurus
Body Type: Medium sized with child rearing hips. Black and white, like an Oreo.
What Else To Know About Oreo:
I’ve given birth to 4 babies who look like miniature versions of my enemies (Pippin and Hissy).
Sometimes I lurk in the back just to see what’s going on. I am elusive. Hard to find me in pictures.
It takes a while to gain my trust, but when you do, I am pretty aggressively affectionate to make up for lost time.
Well, I hope you enjoyed our little feline family. If you’re interested in adopting a baby cat in a couple months, give me a shout!
