As always, I like to feature at least one rescue cat currently residing at the wonderful Wood Green, The Animals Charity as this is where I met my mum and it's one of the charities we continue to support.
This handsome boy is Byron. Mum loves his name and is wondering if he was named after the poet, Lord Byron. You know, he of "She walks in beauty, like the night" (one of Mum's fave poems). He is also famous for a lot more besides being a poet, but I'll leave that for another post, as this one is about this gorgeous boy...

Byron says that once he gets to know you and begins to trust you he will enjoy sitting on your lap.
He is at the Godmanchester shelter waiting for that special someone to take him home. If you are interested in adopting him check out his profile for more info.
Ever wanted to adopt a cat from Cyprus?Cyprus Pride House was established in 2002 and tries to find homes for homeless pets in Cyprus. However, it's sometimes not possible to rehome them all in a country that's overrun with strays. Some of the locals aren't animal lovers and many see these beautiful souls in fur as nothing but vermin. We think that these people are evil scum vermin themselves, but Mum would rather focus her energy on helping the animals rather than getting angry at soulless fools.
We won't go into horror stories here but we're sure you can guess what happens to some animals that happen to be born in the wrong place. It goes on all around the world, of course, and not just in Cyprus.
There are many good people that do try to help these animals, some amazing volunteers who devote their lives to rescuing animals and these people are heroes. As Mum isn't in a position to do that right now, she wants to help raise awareness for animals and pet rescue charities by writing and blogging, and through social media. As a cat influencer, I want to do my bit too!
Cyprus Pride House has many supporters and the charity is able to find homes for many of the rescued animals in the UK and other European countries. With donations and support, every penny goes towards the animals' care.
