Any affection that was offered to her, almost as much as she liked her food
being left alone outside, having babies when I knew they'd be lost to the cold...
she never really liked toys too much
Favorite Nap Spot:
the squishy couch cushion
pretty much anything
surviving multiple winters outside, keeping whatever babies she had alive for as long as she could, but the most important, and impressive skill was learning to trust humans
Mugsy was a completely feral cat when we moved into our apartment, three years ago. If we looked out the window at her, she would run away. After about a year and a half, with a lot of food and patience, she finally would tolerate me touching her. Soon after, though, it turned into much begged for "lovin!" I was very honored that this cat decided to trust me. She still remained the "stray outside," for a while and eventually even brought her two kittens to the house to eat. (one sadly passed away a few days later, but JOIE stuck around) When winter came I begged my boyfriend to let me bring the two of them in. He finally said yes, but Joie wanted nothing to do with it. She howled the whole time, and tore apart the blinds trying to jump through the windows. We eventually gave up and let her back out (only later to have her come back in with 5 babies!!!), but Mugsy loved it inside. She immediately took up residence on the squishy couch cushions, and didn't even care when our two other cats yelled at her.
She ended up sneaking out one night, when in heat, and came back pregnant. Not really knowing how to "deal with it," we had to bring her to the Humane Society. To this day I'm still very upset about this choice and can only hope she found the great home she deserved. She was the most gentle and loving cat anyone could ever want. She even tolerated my two year old son.
Though not officially her guardian anymore, I will always think of Mugs as one of my favorite pets. She came such a long way, from the scrawny, scared "stray," that she once was. I hope she's okay, and I'll miss her always.
