Letter to the editor: Remembering Frank Furko, Pudgie Wudgie

Frank Furko has passed over the Rainbow Bridge to reunite with his beloved famous cat Pudgie Wudgie (“Plum’s Frank Furko, best remembered as Pudgie Wudgie’s owner, dead at 85,” June 21, TribLIVE). What a beautiful reunion that is.

Being a cat lover myself, I read all of the articles about Furko from the “Pudgie Wudgie beat” from 1989-2001. When Pudgie Wudgie died in 2001, Furko dressed him in a beautiful outfit and laid him out in a casket at his farm in Oakmont. Crowds of people came by for days to pay their respects. 

Though I never knew Furko, I know Pudgie Wudgie was a very important part of his life and he derived much happiness from his special cat. May they rest in peace together.

Gloria Wiles

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
