Here are the deets on Mooji, submitted by VIA reader Ella!
| Name: Mooji
Hood: The West End, where he is the only cat in an apartment building full of dogs
Habits: Mooji is a health guru in training. After eying Ella’s livingroom routine, Mooji has started creating his own yoga poses alongside her. (Word has it that Mooj has already surpassed his teacher’s flexibility.) Not content with a mere gourmet raw food diet (that gives him velvety fur,) Mooji has been caught experimenting with oil pulling (with his head in the coconut oil jar,) as well as
trying to get bites of kale, popcorn, and paper to get those extra nutrients. When not eating well or doing yoga, Mooji gets extra exercise showing up all the other cats by playing with THREE toy mice at a time (he growls at the ones not in his mouth to make sure they don’t dare try to escape.) Ella however, is not convinced. She says “The only predatory instincts he has are in his imagination.”
Hangouts: Mooji is in strong standing to be crowned as the most affectionate animal Ella has met. She says he is “usually right under my feet, on my lap, on my laptop or within eyesight of me. He loves laying in bed with me and when he’s scared he goes under the bed.” When not directly at Ella’s side he may be found on the patio or rolling around exposing his tummy in the shower.
Favorite Things: Full wild red herring fish (he eats it starting with the head and works his way down, bones and all.) He also likes Apple accessories (headphones and laptop chargers), plants, belly massages, cuddles and licking noses.
Other Info: Ella tells us “he’s such a loving cat. I used to not like cats until I got him. Sometimes I look at him and have to remind myself that he’s a completely different species than me. We definitely have a strong bond; we understand each other on a level I don’t even know how to explain. I’m now cat crazy.”
