"Struppi" is the beloved companion of Evelyn McCutcheon of
"rescued" a kitten when he was six months old. The kitten - probably 4-5 weeks

him up on the porch. It is so funny to see. I am also still amazed that Struppi
did not hurt this little kitten when he picked it up since he himself was just
a little puppy!
Toby, a Great Pyrenees, was also greatly taken with Max the
