Hi friends, I'm new here, but to give a quick history - I adopted the most gorgeous old girl who was 18 years old through the Cats Protection in Gosport about 3 years ago. Sadly after 2 years of the best, unconditional company myself and my 12 year old son could have asked for, Snowdrop became a sparkly star. We then had the good fortune (through Cat's Protection in Gosport again) to adopt Mr Gin whose owner sadly died of Cancer. He was about 6 years old and again the most gorgeous heifer ginger boy we could of asked for. He must have been the only boy who had shares in Greg's for their Cinnamon Swirls - spoiled but hey one of the family. Sadly, and without any notice, when he went for his check up from the neck up he was diagnosed with cancer. So with much pain we had to say goodbye to Mr Gin after only having the good fortune to know him a year. I doubt I have to explain how devastated yet honoured both my son and I were to have met them both. Well our home is not the same, more so when the oven alarm "pings" and I have no padded paws waiting to be given that extra sausage, piece of beef or pork etc and for snuggles at night either with my son or myself and constant cuddles. I would like to say that I would happily adopt an old girl or old boy, but I do fear I couldn't take losing them so soon - we do live in a lovely flat and so it would be a purrfect friend that stayed at home all the time, with cuddles, toys and above all a family for life. Can anyone help?
