I was playing in the road when a car pulled up and two people got out. I don’t know why, but I felt so excited I just ran full speed towards them. They tried to catch me, but I wanted to play hide-and-seek. After a few minutes, I surrendered. Then, like a prince, I was chauffeur driven to my new home and shown my accommodation. I had my own room and compared to the street, this was luxury! I was given plenty of nice food, a warm and cosy bed and lots of fuss.
When I was allowed visitors, the first friendly face I met was Woodstock. I soon learned that he liked to be everyone’s friend and was always at pains to put the newcomer at ease. I heard he came from the streets too so we had something in common. I also met a strange little girl called Twiglet, who had a crooked, broken tail and one of her back legs was much shorter than all the others which meant she hopped about everywhere. It didn’t seem to bother her though as she tore around the house on three legs. We soon became very good friends.
I am surrounded by lots and lots of friends. I particularly love playing with Noodle, Woodstock and Benson. The hours fly past as we jump about and race around the house having a ball. I sometimes play with Ripley too, but as she can be a bit fierce you never know whether she’s just playing or is getting ready to give you the run of your life.
I think I’m going to be a petite character as I am small for my age and still need to grow. I didn’t have the best start in life so I need to make up for that and build up some muscles. Otherwise, I am as fit as a fiddle.
I have lots to learn and even more to see and do so it’s going to be an exciting few years ahead. I’m looking forward to growing up with my new family.
My estimated age on arrival in 2022: two to three months.
In September 2022 I weighed 0.6 kg – a mere peanut!
In March 2023 I weighed 3.4 kg.
I tested negative for FeLV, but positive for FIV.
I am neutered and fully vaccinated and nice and healthy. I am also very friendly and love to socialise.
When I first got here, one of my humans was convinced my head was too big for my body and my eyes looked strange. Charming! Turns out, there’s nothing wrong with me, thank you very much. I am unique.
Noodle and I look very similar so we have great fun confusing our humans. We deliberately sleep next to each other so they can’t tell us apart.
When my humans capture me to take me to the vet, apparently I meow like a croaky, old cat! Like I said, I’m unique.
My favourite habit is jumping onto one of my humans’ shoulder, like a monkey! I assess the distance, weigh up my options and then launch myself like a rocket.
I love to race down the corridor and from one end of the house to the other, either in hot pursuit or running for my life!
