“I grew up around cats, but Zelda is the first one I adopted on my own,” Jessica says. “I kept her original name because it’s so unique. When people ask if she was named after the character in the Legend of Zelda video games, I say ‘yes’ but that I don’t play the games. I was won over by her beautiful eyes!
“She adjusted gradually to living with me and although she didn’t like my roommate’s cat at first, they tolerate each other now. She’s definitely made me feel less lonely since my move to Portland, and while I’ve been trying to harness train her, it’s not going well.
