Acquired: Other (stray, given cat by friend etc.)

My cat Mushu was named after the dragon from Mulan for being loud, but a very loving companion. My dad brought home a stray one day who happened to be pregnant, and thus Mushu was born, but months after the mother gave birth, the mother passed away. Mushu couldn’t quite wrap around that her mother was gone. She used to run upstairs in the bathroom where her mother was last seen and stay there till someone would carry her away. It was so saddening. No one ever thinks of how animals must feel when separated from their parents whether through death or adoption. Mushu really cared for her mother- even if she did only happen to know her for a few months. I remember when I was young how Mushu would sit in the bathroom, meowing. No one in the house could stand it. Her meowing wasn’t a meow cats make when hungry and wanting to play. As our family expanded, we eventually moved to another house where she eventually stopped reminiscing and began to bond with our family. It took some time, but she’s a very loving cat who adores being showed attention and scratched. I don’t know if this is for every cat, but I recommend these cats if you’re looking for a cat that’s actually loving and laid back. Cats may not be seen as better than dogs, but cats deserve to be loved just as much. They’re passionate little creatures.
