Graham Shuee adopted a kitten eventually named Quandary Q Lotus Lady from a Colorado shelter to use in his proposal to Erin. He placed a basket in her path as they were hiking in the mountains, which contained both the kitten and a ring. Of course, she said yes. Graham and Erin have since married, and have three cats. And Q, as she is called, still goes mountaineering with them.
"It was her idea in our minds, ever since the proposal she's been tagging along on most our adventures. She's almost like a dog in that respect, she's very vocal and makes it known when she is restless and when she wants to get out and explore."
Erin hopes their adventures with Q help other people realize that just because they have a cat, it doesn't mean they can't take it outdoors and do things like hiking. Quandary was adopted from a rescue in Colorado Springs, Erin wants Quandary's adventures to inspire others to adopt shelter cats.
