List all the pets Martin and Sandra have had (and post photos)
Both George and Puffy terrorized another family pet -- Christopher the parakeet. They could never reach his cage to eat him, but they would jump off the kitchen table and knock it over with a loud clatter. We think they tried to induce a heart attack. There were other pets that were the children's -- a turtle named Paul Tripp (after a children's tv show host); numerous goldfish, none of whom lasted very long, and would be ceremonially flushed down the toilet. No dogs.
After Steve and I left home, a stray cat showed up -- resembling a scrawny golden-haired Puffy -- and my parents took her in. She was named Piffy.
There were various neighborhood tomcats. One sadly would wait out front for Elsa -- but apparently, it was another who became the father of Elsa's children.
