ssh-add gives error message: Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.

This is because your ssh-agent has stopped running for some reason and is unable to restart automatically. Try removing the following file on PUMA:

puma$ rm ~/.ssh/environment.puma

Then log out of PUMA and back in again. You should then see a message similar to:

Initialising new SSH agent...

And you should then be able to run ssh-add successfully.
