I adopted Coraline in September 2018. I had never had a cat before, and even though I’d read a lot about cat ownership beforehand, the experience was better than I could have imagined. Coraline and my boyfriend bonded immediately, and therefore she became an avid watcher of soccer, wrestling, and football, in addition to the period dramas she watches with me. She loves chasing mice and saying hello and “I love you” with a lick of your arm (or your face if you let her). She observes my yoga practices from a safe distance but curls up with me while I’m reading before bed. When the pandemic hit she became our therapy cat, so we have leaned on her often for purrs and quiet understanding. She is such a sweet and beautiful tortie that we forgive her occasional Tortitude moments of sass. We love Coraline so much and I am so glad I adopted her when I did!
