See The Light For Pet Adoption #RememberMeThursday


I've shared my rescue story many times on this blog, and many of you may know that Mum and I wrote about it in my book A Forever Home For Athena.

Here is the short version of my rescue story in honour of Remember Me Thursday.

I was found abandoned in someone's garden as a kitten in the summer of 2011. Wood Green The Animals Charity took me in and cared for me until they put me up for adoption when I was 10 weeks old. At the time, Mum had been searching her local pet shelters online for adoptable kittens.

She had wanted a cat for a long time and it took a while to find me, but then she saw this little face and went to see me at the shelter the very next day.

This is the photo that was posted online. Mum saw it and went to the shelter to enquire about me. It is now framed on our bedroom wall.

It was love at first sight for both of us. I wanted Marie to be my Mum. In fact, I knew she was my mum as soon as I saw her.

So two days later she took me to my forever home and we love each other so much!

You were simply squeeable! Rescue is our favorite breed. I wish I knew more of my past. All the cats in our family have come from shelters or right off the street.
