    Mystery, you are wonderful indeed- and you picked a mom who is an excellent writer as well which makes you even more special. Your story deserves to become a classic of making friends- just like Antoine de Saint Exupéry's story of the prince and the fox.
    You certainly found the right purrson for you- and may you live happily together for a long long time to come.

    I opened the back door, cried out "Meow?" and the bush went "Meow-wow!" and a familiar wet streak made a mad dash for the welcoming door, and as I snapped it shut, my new friend found his bed, did circles on top of it, sampled his food, but knowing fully why I was doing all this, he opened his golden eyes wide, and in silent cat language, and thanked me from the bottom of his kitty-heart. To this day, nine years later (and adapted to becoming a fully indoor pet) he reminds me every day just how grateful he is.

    So why did I choose the name Mystery for him? So many unanswered questions I have about where did he come from, why was he neutered but had no collar, how could he have lived for about a year on his own and remain in perfect health, who taught him to use the litter box, how did he come to me, and to this day not tolerate another person to come anywhere near him, why is he so well behaved and never gets into trouble, and the weirdest one of all ... why does a nineteen-pound solid tomcat still to this day ask to climb on to my shoulder and beg to be carried around? What else could I name this incredible being?

    He is the most gentle, loving animal I have ever met, always wanting to sit with me and purr away. He teaches me new things, such as how to pet play with him differently, how he loves to go on a hunt finding hidden toys and proudly trot through the house announcing his achievement. We have become best friends, and I am just as thankful every day, too, for the marvelous and mysterious gift left for me to treasure.
    Oh my goodness, Mystery! You came to your person because you just knew that would be the right forever home for you. No one else's home would be the one. I would love to watch you hunt for toys or see you purr from your person's shoulders! You are gorgeous with your beautiful tuxedo coat and your amazing golden eyes. Please have your person give you a whole ton of hugs, snuggles, kisses, lovies and petting for me today (some for Miss Blasty-Pants too, please ) Happy Cat of the Day to you, precious Mystery!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Not only does your guardian have the gift of you, Mystery, but also the gift of writing beautifully! Considering that you were already neutered and your guardian had just moved in to the house, possibly you were left behind by the previous dwellers. Only you know, and you're not divulging, right? If all was known about your past then your loving guardian might have to change your name. Better to live up to it and retain the mystery. Wishing you and your best friend enjoy long, healthy lives together!

    Oh, Mystery, we are so glad you found your WONDERFUL FURRREVER HOME, with the Purrrrson who never gave up on you, kept on bringing you more and more home. God bless him/her and God bless you too and even Miss Blasty-pants!

    And what an utterly beautiful, handsome Tuxedo fellow you are. You look like you possess the wisdom of the ages and the utter contentment and appreciation of being at home with so very much love shared all around. What a treasure indeed you are.

    Congratulations on being selected today's Cat of the Day, Mr. Mystery! We hope you and your whole family are celebrating with lots of fun and lovies and special treats!

    This was the best story ever!! I also was smiling ear to ear with tears in my eyes.

    Congrats, Mystery, on finding your furever person and home. And also congrats on being Cat of the Day! I do hope Miss Blasty-pants eventually accepted you as well.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.
