Black and White Sunday

Athena’s Gotcha Day is 21st July 2011. She came into my life a tiny 10 week old kitten. All I know of her is that she was abandoned in someone’s garden. But when I adopted her from Wood Green, The Animals Charity and got her home she wasn’t afraid of anything. She just wanted food. And lots of it! Then she wanted to nap on my lap. I couldn’t believe how affectionate she was, especially after all she’d been through. I’m sure it’s all thanks to Wood Green and their amazing staff and volunteers that this little tabby girl was able to trust me. Or maybe she just knew I was meant to be her human mother. I am pretty sure she chose me because when I went into the shelter to see her (after I saw her on the website) she immediately came towards me in her pen and we touched paw to finger through the mesh door. We bonded immediately and on her first night with me two days after meeting  for the time, when I got to take her home, she slept on my bed with me. It was amazing how much she wanted to be close to me all the time. I knew then that all I wanted was to take care of this little bundle of fluff and joy. My beautiful fur daughter.

  2. Happy early Gotcha Day Athena! Her story is similar to my cat’s story – he was also abandoned as a little kitten and I decided to take him home with me. all he wanted, like Athena was to eat and cuddle.
