Introducing Muswell

My neighbour and I put out food for the strays that frequent the co-op. One day last fall, this adorable orange tabby showed up. At first, he was so skittish I had to put the food down and dash inside so as not to scare him. Eventually, he let me pet him, and before I knew it, he was purring in my lap. When winter rolled around and I spotted him at the window meowing, I just had to let him in.

Last month, I finally adopted him and took him for a check-up. Muswell is two and a half (says the vet) and in good health. He's now off the street and in a good home; as for me, I get a loyal companion out of the deal. And yes, he really is as angelic as he looks!

How wonderful! What a cutie you have there, Vern! You're both very lucky to have found one another :) Thanks for sharing the picture!

Oh, I just loved that story Vern! What a sweetheart. You inspired me, good for you for helping out the poor little one.

I'm Jamie and Shannon's sister Suzie BTW, LOL.

Yes, Jamie has spoken (glowingly) of you many times. We apparently share a quirky trait in common: a mutual disdain for Ottawa (The City That Fun Forgot). Glad you escaped!

BTW, I've never lived there; my few brief visits quelled that notion in a hurry. Having said that, I like it okay as a tourist destination.
