Adopting a Feline Friend: The Story of Mu

If you know me, you might have heard that I have “restless feet”. I’ve lived in Southern Connecticut, Monterey, California, Boulder, Colorado, and now Middletown, Virginia. Each place has its own unique charm and beauty, but the one constant in my life has been my love for animals, especially cats.

In December, I noticed a black cat running around my property and it wasn’t until the frigid weather hit that she came to my front door, meowing for help. Worried for her safety, I set up a live trap and she easily walked in. After checking with neighbors, it was clear that she was a stray, so I took her to a vet for a check-up, spaying, and vaccinations.

Within a few days, this little feline had won over my son and me, and we soon realized that she had chosen us as her new family. My son named her Mu, after my attempts to get her attention with “mew mew mew”. Mu has since become a beloved member of our family and will now live with my son in Los Angeles where she will be pampered and loved.

The story of Mu shows that sometimes, it’s the animals that choose us as their guardians, and we are forever grateful for the joy and love they bring into our lives
