My Gotcha Day Anniversary!

We can't believe that it's been four years since I was adopted. To me it was like winning the lottery (and for Mum too). I found the most loving forever home with the purrfect mum. Of course I chose her because I knew she was the one as soon as I saw her walk through the door at the shelter.

Athena and Marie
With my Mum Marie and the photo of me that she saw on the shelter website. Come on, how can anyone resist that face? 

But other cats and pets are not so lucky. However, there are so many ways to help them. First of all, you can choose to adopt a pet rather than buy. You could also foster, volunteer, sponsor, donate money or food and other essentials. Most animal shelters have an Amazon wish list these days, which we think is an excellent way to help the shelter of your choice. Mum does this. It's what we have done with most of the proceeds made from my book. Instead of donating money we donate food and toys and stuff from the wish lists of the charities we support.

To celebrate my Gotcha Day Anniversary Mum will donate 50 pence for every comment left on this post to the animal charity that rescued me

So please, leave a comment below and let's see how much we can raise! 

pure love
