Ada the little tabby

It is 3 years since my “old” cat Bella passed away aged 18 (she looked very similar to Ada and was also aged 3 months when I found her dumped) and I did not feel ready to replace her but finally a friend convinced me and took me to Lort Smith Animal Hospital the very same day so I wouldn’t change my mind.

cute rescued ginger and white kitten
Maomao the little rescue

Maomao was found wandering on the streets in Shanghai. Apparently the little fuzzy ball had been digging through trash. Her face was covered with soot and dirt. Lou’s friend, an animal rescuer came across this little beauty. There was no way she would let her go. On the same day, she brought the little one to her new foster home.

Edward came to me on my 25th birthday. After that, he slept on my pillow every night. I have to say, it was like having a baby. He made me get up in the night every night to feed him, by tapping my nose and then sort of biting/sucking my nose. It was the beginning of his many mischievous antics.

Little Twiggles and Rofl came into their foster home when they were four days young. Though Rofl was still tiny, he had a big set of lungs and always made himself heard. Rofl’s brother Twiggles was the little “piggie” of the family. He got a round kissable belly that was so cute that it hurt.

See Twiggles and Rofl in action:

“After so many foster kitties, I am now convinced that there is affection gene… and these boys have it! They are already smooching me and purring at my touch. Simply brilliant,” said Catherine Donaldson, foster mom.

“Rofl is such a cheeky monkey so don’t be fool with his sweetness act. Okay, be fooled for a little bit but honestly he really is a lovable little guy. The sweetest little grease monkey I know. Twiggles weakens me at the knees.”

“My favourite thing is to watch them play around the edge of the cushions, lying flat against the floor and clawing along the cushion’s edge while chasing each other… like a horizontal game of chasey.”

Today Twiggles and Rofl have been adopted. “I am very proud of these little guys… being born on the streets, life could have been so easily not as pleasant and sweet as they experienced, but thankfully, our paths crossed right at the correct time and arriving at 4 days old. These boys didn’t grow into the smoochers I had hoped (what with their early cute efforts) but they are adorable little gentlemen and I wish them long and gorgeous lives ahead.”
