Kitten Dumped on Doorstep (reminds me of what happened to me) :( :(

Just saw this video with my mum and it broke our hearts (and brought back horrible memoires for me). A little kitten was dumped (in a box) on the Wood Green Shelter doorstep (the shelter I came from). To make things worse, the woman seen here dumped the poor thing at night (9.30pm). Luckily, the charity's security team had been alerted via CCTV. We dread to think what would have happened to the kitten if this hadn't been so.

Really really hope that this kitty is as lucky as I was and gets the loving forever home she deserves!

Charity Tuesday: Blog the Change for Animals #BtC4A

I have been a very lucky cat because I found the best forever home and human mum ever. Some cats aren't so lucky, and that's really sad.

So as it's Charity Tuesday, I've decided to blog about it to help other cats find forever homes too.

And my mum just told me that it is Blog the Change for Animals day too, so how fitting that I decided to post this today!

As an animal advocate, my mum already posts a lot about animal adoption on her blog, but I told her we should do it on mine too because I am a rescue cat, and have my own book out, A Forever Home For Athena, telling the world about my own rescue story, and which I wrote with my mum to help raise money for three of our favourite cat charities.

If you don't know much about me and haven't read my book yet, here is the very short version:

I was a little abandoned kitten who thought my life was truly over until I got rescued by Wood Green the Animal Charity. I then got taken to their London centre, and though I was very scared in there, it wasn't long before I found a forever home. You see, that's where my mum came to adopt me (after she had seen me on the Wood Green website.)

It was love at first sight for the both of us.

As I was rescued by the London shelter, I wanted to help other cats that are currently there waiting for their forever home too. I hope they are as lucky as I was and get adopted quickly into loving homes.

I know most of you are from US, but for any UK readers, if you live nearby and are looking for a new cat why not check out the Wood Green website for more information? Maybe, just like my mum and me, you will find the purrfect match for you!

Wood Green has cats available for rehoming at three of their shelters - Godmanchester, Heydon and London.


Lioness was brought into the London shelter as her owner could no longer look after her. She is still getting used to shelter life, so is understandably a little shy and nervous. However she loves to be made a fuss off and enjoys the company of people. Lioness is looking for a home with previous cat experience who can help her blossom into a loving member of the family.
