MJ, short for Mary Jane, is definitely not like other cats. Born in a closet drawer in Rudi’s bedroom on April Fools, she had an unusual start, and after Rudi discovered her favourite spot to rest was his shoulders he decided to train her to accompany him to work.
‘The first day we managed one block. The next day we managed two blocks and now we can do around 25 miles with her on my shoulder. MJ enjoys the wind rushing through her fur and she moves around from shoulder to shoulder.’
MJ loved the buzz of the streets of Philadelphia and only got scared of the odd siren. People were often surprised when they noticed the feline of Rudi's shoulder and she got more than her share of daily cuddles from delighted customers.
