I adopted Fusion from what used to be the Brazos County Animal Shelter not long after moving to Texas. Unlike what you might hear about cats, she was very affectionate, even clingy at times. Maybe because she was raised by a nut (i.e. me), she had some odd quirks, including randomly peeing on any cloth or shoes left lying on the floor, meowing relentlessly for no apparent reason, and licking the dogs. Her name was shout out to my geeky nature and career, being short for ColdFusion (the language I programmed in for 15 years or so).

When she was younger, she would come to to a whistle, her name, the shaking of a cat food/treat bag, or the sound of a cat food can being opened. She also loved playing with string, toilet paper rolls, and the plastic rings of milk cartoons. She lived a good long life, then at 17 went into kidney failure. She held on another year, but her condition began to deteriorate rapidly as it got worse. Eventually the call was made to have her humanely euthanized, as she'd gotten down to only four pounds, had loss her hearing and most of her sight, and was having more bad days than good.

She has been cremated and her ashes interred in a cedar urn.
