Welcome to my blog. My human mom finally set up my own blog after all these years of having to share digital space with her. I mean, I don’t mind, but at some point I had to fly to coop and there is no time like the present to do so. Right?
Who am I?
I am a Persian cat born in Thailand in 2013 to a breeder who meant well. When I was barely a few months old, I was adopted on the condition that I was not to be mated yet, since I was too young. My new owner paid no heed, however, and still went ahead and paired me up with some unknown Tom. Needless to say, this tore me up inside and when I miscarried my litter, I was returned to the cattery as “damaged goods”.
The next owner was a kinder person whom I never really got to know. Although I had been officially adopted again, I was initially transferred to a foster home until my new owner was ready to take me in. My stay at the foster home was brutal and miserable, as I was bullied and attacked by all the other cats, in addition to the human who in charge of me also shouting and kicking me around. It reached the point where I was a walking bag of open wounds and scratches.
A small animal rescue team somehow came to know of my plight and demanded I be returned immediately. After much negotiation my foster human finally agreed, on the condition that the handover take place in a dark corner of the bus station. It was only when I was half way to Bangkok and the light shone on me that my rescuers saw my condition. I was rushed to the next veterinary hospital to be stitched up, bathed and injected with all sorts of antibiotics.
I found my forever home in June of 2014, with a family who had just lost their cat while moving from New Delhi to Bangkok. They were supposed to be just a foster family until the rescue team could find a permanent family for me, but from the moment we met, we all decided we would stay together.
Mom and I travel a lot together, and I absolutely adore car, train, bus and plane rides. We moved from Bangkok to Manila in 2016 and I had my first plane ride then, and have never looked back. Then we moved from Manila to Berlin and now I am city girl who goes on bus, underground or subway rides! Unfortunately I have two other housemates whom Mom decided to adopt last year, also Persians and they will appear here from time to time. I am a certified and registered Emotional Support Animal.
