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.

It is always so important to be there for animals in need - it sets a good example for other humans!

Athena, you are so beautiful, and obviously deserve nothing but the best in life. So many of your friends are just like you, and kudos to the shelters like Wood Green that care for them and help them find their own forever homes.
Here's to forever homes for all pets in need!
Thank you for blogging the change for animals,

We know. It could have been so very different. We just hope other kitties and abandoned animals could be too. It's so sad what happens to most of them.

Thank you. Let's hope no more kitties have to suffer :)

Thank you. Wood Green are one of the best in the UK.

We agree. No animal should be put to sleep just because they cannot find a home. We hope that more and more people care to stop this and realise animals deserve to live just as humans do.
