Pink the Little Furry Fighter

Pink was given a second chance when he met Jennifer Pountney’s daughter who works at a vet clinic. “Pink was the result of a difficult birth at my daughters vet clinic,” said Jennifer. They were not sure if he would make it, but Jennifer’s daughter had a feeling that somehow he would pull through, so she brought him home with her. Pink who was named after the singer became the only survivor in his litter. “The mother cat did not want him back, so I hand reared him which was quite an experience,” said Jennifer.

To Pink it was a happy story from that point on. He grew up with all sorts of furry friends – other cats, dogs, horses, sheep and even poultry. “He has a fascination with water and is constantly entertaining. He loves to accompany me around our rural property, and to go for walks…. If I sneak off walking without him he screams blue murder until he catches up! He loves his fake fur blanket more than anything,” Jennifer added.

The little fighter has touched everyone’s heart in his forever home. He thinks he is the happiest kitty in the world.
