Here’s what Putya’s Dad had to say when he presented Putya back to his mom :
“I wanted to let you know that we gave Putya to my wife last weekend and she cried hysterically (from joy!) for about 15 minutes. She's been sleeping with him (tightly) every night and is so incredibly happy. Thanks again so much for everything.” (later that same week) “Putya is doing great... my wife still holds him tight every night... so cute!”

Then a cleaning and a trim of the “new” fur patch. Time to go home Puff-Puff.
