One of my fellow residents, Jeong Ju, recently adopted a feral cat that had been dropped off here at Penland back in the winter. During the spring and summer Jeong Ju patiently wooed this little orange fella at the school dining hall where he hung out. Finally one day in Sept he followed her the 1/2 mile from the dining hall to her apartment and that was that. He's still shy around others, but follows Jeong Ju like a dog. She named him Urie.
