I bloody love my cat

Honestly, she is such a beautiful soul.

We found her screaming under a bin in Turkey. She was about 10 days old with had a horrid infected injury on her face and she was covered in blood, pus and flies. Mum had 4 other kittens not far away but she wasn't coming back for our girl. I took her to the local vet to ask them to put her to sleep - it seemed kinder than starving to death in the heat. They cleaned her up and offered to try her on antibiotics. Turns out she was a fighter. I drip fed her at first and kept her clean until she was big enough to risk an operation on her face. She ended up losing the eye.

5 years later and thousands of miles from where we found her, i am grateful every day that she screamed at me. She is so sweet and loving. She is like a calming little zen cat. She is timid and scrawny and nervous of people she doesn't know, but she loves us fiercely. When one of the children are unwell she doesn't leave their side.

I can't describe how much joy i get from seeing her lounging in the sun, or mewing crossly because I'm late with her dinner.

I bloody love my cat too..... but slightly less at 4am when he is complaining loudly that there is nothing to drink other than in the 3 bowls scattered around the house and something evil has turned the water outside solid.....

What a lovely story OP (well it had a happy ending anyway). And such a beautiful girl.

There are so many stray, scrawny cats in Turkey. It's heartbreaking.

What a lucky girl! I bet she loves you just as much as you love her 😻.

(I travelled 40 miles for mine - I feel a bit of a lightweight now!!! 😁)

Aww, that's so lovely to hear!! I love my cats too, esp my one, she's my girl alright. I ended up with her by mistake. I'd actually put a deposit down on her sister who must have been sold to someone else as when I turned up the one I thought I was having was no where to be seen. They bundled my girl in a box without letting me see her. I was with my sister who said check it's the right one and then to take her back when it wasn't. No way was I doing that, she was so cute regardless. 10 years on and I'd be lost without her.

Thanks guys. People say that she's lucky, but we're the lucky ones to have her. I couldn't imagine the family without her.

It's funny, I've had animals my whole life - dogs, cats, all sorts of small fuzzies, mostly rescues. This girl is different. (I get a bit 'woo' and sometimes wonder if she was meant to find us blush).
