    Fluff waited helplessly in the February cold for humans who never returned home to their abandoned apartment.

    The longhaired tabby cat, haphazardly splotched with matted fur, was eventually saved from freezing by a neighbor, who shortly surrendered Fluff to a shelter after determining that the small creature did not exactly flourish in a home with dogs and small children.
