Biffy, the could be “vampire slayer” basking in the sun

This is Biffy. Her name comes from “Buffy: the Vampire Slayer”. Her owner worked on that TV show when the show was made in Vancouver. It ran between 1993 and 2003.

Biffy is a very relaxed cat. Not much fazes her. I am about 1½ meter away (about 5 feet) with my dog just behind me. She’s not concerned. She’s not ready to run away, look at her paws, they are still folded, she’s not ready to move.

She’s paying attention. Is she looking at me or at my dog which is behind me? I don’t know. But there is no fear in these eyes. Biffy is mostly an indoor cat. She’ll come and lounge on the stairs if the weather is nice, but she has no problem staying indoors for weeks on end.

Lana found Biffy in a side lane of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside. She was scrawny and starving. The vet, then, said that she was between 2 and 4 years old. Now, Biffy is a “big cat”…
