Socks the Tuxedo Shorthair, the Cat of the Day
Name: Socks
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tuxedo Shorthair
Home: Ohio, USA
   My cat, Socks, was a stray cat in Colorado. We found him one day in our yard. He went up to my father and affectionately nuzzled him. This was surprising since at the time, he was a very moody, un-trusting cat because he had been mistreated in the past. My parents were sure he would go away, but he stayed. My parents tried to give him to our neighbors, thinking we did not need a cat, but Socks knew better. One day he followed me home and we finally realized Socks had made himself a member of our family.

     Ever since then, even though he goes outdoors all the time, he still hasn't run away, even though he was once sedated and crated for our move here to Ohio. Here he was, in a new state, and he had escaped outside, which the vet said might make him want to leave us (being sedated and confused). But he came right back. That was years ago now, and he has been part of the family ever since. Socks chose us, and we are lucky to have such a loyal and loving cat.
