I do like telling this story.
Back in early August 2017, I went with a friend to visit the local RSPCA in Blackberry Farm. We were just going to find a way to entertain her children for an afternoon. I had no intention of looking for another cat to home; Toffee was already getting my full attention.
We were in the cattery and there were dozens of beautiful kitties I could have taken home with me, but I remained strong and stubbornly did not let any of their soulful eyes penetrate my cold dead heart.
Seeing Pops (Wilson) for the first time
Without warning, my friend beckoned me to see this cat with one eye and so I did. As this cat came into my view, a sudden feeling I could not control hit me. It was love at first sight.
He was called “Wilson” at the time. And of course, it was a very sad history to be told. I looked at him again; I could see he had been through so much already. Had been at the RSPCA for 3 months already.
My heart melted. But could I take another cat without affective Toffee? I had to try. After a quick discussion with my friend, who was useless…all she kept saying was “Get him, Do it”. I went to the desk and put forward my interest.
I will never forget that day, and on the 8th August 2017, I went with my wonderful friend Kelly to pick him up. And I’ve been in love ever since.
Friends who know me are well aware of my devotion to Pops and Toffee. I have done much growing up in the past few years because of those two. Being responsible for them and taught me so much about myself and the things I care for. Knowing that they are safe and have a home is all I need to know in life that is full of mistakes and regret.
