Susan M. Bufano, (1952 - 2004) Susan’s life was woven amongst the animals she befriended and cared for. Throughout her life Susan befriended countless other dogs and cats, pet-sitting for friends and neighbors when they needed her, and taking care of the occasional stray cats that wandered up to her door. Her love for animals even extended to llamas, as she helped out a local family that raised llamas. Local squirrels mysteriously appeared regularly at her windows, looking for handouts. At the time of her sudden death, she was caring for two cats of her own and two “strays”. A supporter of various animal rescues, Susan Bufano never drove by a dog or cat that appeared lost. She never refused to help any animal in distress. She was always there for the dogs and cats that shared her life. Richard A. Bajackson
