Please always adopt pets if you can. There are so many animals in shelters everywhere waiting and waiting for forever homes. Some wait for ages, some never find a home and some sadly are put to sleep (which is so disgusting by the way 🤬)
Every animal deserves love and care 💟
And animals are capable of giving so much 💗💖 and more back!
For example, Mum needed me and I needed her, and we rescued each other.
I came along a few months after Mum lost her dad. On September 30th it is actually the 10-year anniversary since he passed.
Mum has always suffered from depression and anxiety and so took his death really bad. She had wanted a cat for ages up to that point, but after the heartbreak of losing her beloved tuxedo girl Suzy in 1998, she couldn't bring herself to let another furry soul into her heart. For years, she focused instead on her studies and writing.
Anyway, fast forward to July 21st, 2011, the best day ever for Mum and me - she went to Wood Green, The Animals Charity to adopt me!
She had seen me two days before on the charity's website.
I was at the shelter because I had been abandoned as a kitten. I was found in someone's garden and had been taken to Wood Green. They took care of me and soon I was up for adoption. As soon as Mum walked to my pen I started climbing the wire mesh door. She had come for me, I knew it. I had chosen her after all!
And the rest is history.
Here's baby me on the day I got adopted sitting on Mum's lap at home. I was just over 10 weeks old.
