|Rufus, the Formerly Feral Feline.|
All of our cats are (and have been) rescues of one sort or another, but Rufus is unique in that he's the only one who volunteered to become an indoor cat.
He'd been coming to the food bowl we put out for the neighborhood ferals for a couple of years. And then he turned up one day with an enormous abscess on his right cheek. He sat down and waited for us to bring a carrier out.
All through his recovery--and he needed multiple surgeries to remove all of his teeth--Rufus was amazingly helpful and courteous, taking his medications without protest and making no effort to escape.
When he turned out to be FIV-positive, we made the decision to bring him into our clowder, and it's worked out beautifully.
He's not much of a reader, but he often visits me in my office while I'm writing and force me to take petting breaks.
Rufus is especially fond of heavy metal, and often leans against the subwoofer when I put some on as writing music.
