Rufus found us in a parking lot after crossing a busy four-lane street. He appeared to have been on the loose for a long time—dirty, scruffy, hungry. It turned out to be one of the luckiest days of our lives. He came home with us, met our other cats and dogs, and told us he wanted to stay. Rufus is always happy. His tail wags constantly. One of our friends has dubbed him “The Ambassador of Goodwill.” He has enriched our lives beyond measure.
