Whatever It Takes –
July 7, 2018 – A tortoiseshell kitten named Zoe is more than a pet for Cheri Mueller and Chris Gunter. She’s a symbol of the couple’s ongoing recovery from opioid addiction. “They told us we had to have an animal and a plant and we’d be doing good in our sobriety if they were still alive after a year,” Mueller said. It’s working so far for both Zoe and her owners, who found her as a stray in the parking lot of the Savannah Treatment Center, a methadone clinic off Chatham Parkway. It was an early morning in May, before Cheri dropped off Chris at his job installing and refinishing hardwood floors. Along with the daily dose of cherry-flavored methadone, they got a pet that day.
