How Having A Cat Is Helping My Mental Health

You might figure from the name of this website that we have a dog and not a cat. We did have a dog a few years ago and when we got Jackson I thought he was everything I’d ever wanted. To be completely honest, I think John and I both felt really stressed not long after we got him. Working and making sure he had the walks he needed etc. was a lot of hard work. We got Jackson as a puppy and figured we would have a good few years with him before having children, letting him mature a

Adopting A Rescue Cat: How To Help Them Get Settled

AD | Gifted Three weeks ago we added a new member to the family. Jinx the rescue kitten came from a foster home with Cats Protection, where she was 1 of 9 kittens that were found in a shed.

Welcome To The Family Jinx

A few months ago I wrote about both of our rabbits sadly dying within a couple of days for each other. At the time we said no more pets, at least not for a while.

But, Erin

Meet Jara The Foster Cat

You may have seen on our Instagram account recently a few pictures about a cat. Well, we have recently become foster cat owners. My sister Natalie and her fiance Chris live in London and a cat kind of adopted them as owners a little while ago. Unfortunately, they don’t live somewhere that allows pets so they can’t give her a home right now. Natalie has tried to get so many animal shelters and RSPCA branches to take her in but no one would. It wouldn’t have been a problem really but with Natalie and Chris going away for a while, they
