Fioravanti was raised with a nomadic lifestyle as her family was transferred every few years working for AAFES (Army Air Force Exchange Service). The only consistent parts of her life were her family and her pets, especially Puffy.

“Puffy and I travelled the world together. We lived in Tachikawa, Japan; San Mateo, California; Desoto, Texas; Munich, Germany; Duncanville, Texas; San Antonio, Texas; Nieder Roden, Germany and finally Portland, Oregon together,” Fioravanti says. “My entire childhood was encapsulated by the years of her life.”

Readers will agree that nine lives are never enough to spend with a four-legged best friend. Puffy has nine lives, as she survives signifcant trauma eight times in twenty-one years. Fioravanti is the character “Blue,” a nickname she picked up because of her rebellious blue eye shadow, blue eyeliner, blue mascara and bright blue boots.

Puffy & Blue is purr-fect for fans of Dewey: The Small Town Cat Who Touched the World, Homer’s Odyssey: A Fearless Feline Tale, A Street Cat Named Bob: And How He Saved My Life and Marley & Me: Life and Love with the Worlds Worst Dog.

Puffy & Blue: The Chronicles of Nine Lives Together will be available online through major retailers including, Barnes& in paperback and on Kindle.

What Readers Are Saying about Puffy & Blue:

“Fioravanti’s stories of incredible devotion between a girl and a black-ball-of-fur kitten named Puffy, had me laughing and crying through every chapter. I never thought a cat was capable of following her beloved person to school, or of raising a young girl while teaching her important life lessons, but Fioravanti’s Puffy and Blue proved me wrong on both counts. The stories are deeply touching.” Debbie Richards
