So when I got together with Mairi I inherited two cats. On called Basil and one called Sybil, they are excellent cats to live with and provide a lot of joy so here is their stories on how they came from cat protection league to live with Mairi and how they are doing now.
Basil was from the cat protection league (Wigan) and was taken from a litter of 22. The woman who owned him used him as a pin cushion and also fed him on McDonalds. When Mairi first got him he hid behind the sofa for 3 months.
He now enjoys life and is a cat that LOVES playing and being hugged, he still acts like a kitten despite being over 9 years old! He begs for food and wags his tail when he is happy (like a dog), he is a very special needs cat and often does things like running into walls, getting stung by a bee (twice) and often gets a smack for being annoying from Sybil. which brings me on to…
Sybil was found on the streets of Wigan and was housed a number of times but was quickly given back to cat protection league in Wigan when she would appear stand offish and not come for a stroke. She would during her time ‘inside’ work out how to break out of the cat protection inner cage and would spend time outside.
Mairi gave her a loving home and now at times we can’t tell her NOT to hug, she is a loving and intelligent cat. She will often work out how to open doors, windows, and pull and push ting around in order to get to higher things. She is quite the smart pants of the cat world.
So as i said both cats now have loving homes and only cost £20 each BARGAIN. So if you like cats get them from a cat protection league and help give a Cat that hasn’t had a great start in life a decent future.
