Edwina, the Cat of the Day
Name: Edwina
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Cat
Home: Chicago, Illinois, USA
   My husband wanted a cat. I am allergic and was apprehensive. We went to the shelter and when they sat this beautiful (but a bit bedraggled) gray and white cat on my husband's lap he asked her if she wanted to go home with us. She looked up and gave a meow that sounded just like "Yes!" We were hooked.

    We had agreed she would stay in our finished basement during the day if we weren't home and overnight. Within two weeks she had complete run of the house, had established her favorite spot on our bed and had totally won my heart (she already had my husband's.)

    Now Lady Edwina spends her days comfortably enthroned on her favorite chair where she can keep an eye on the various birds, squirrels, chipmunks, and rabbits that visit her feeder, her evenings playing and cuddling, and her nights curled up in bed with us.
