When I lost Dolly, I was so completely grateful for Pixie, but it just wasn’t the same. My house wasn’t a home without a cat. So about six months ago my Mum called me and told me she’d found a kitten at an adoption center in South Shields, she sent me a photo on Facebook Messenger and I said, “I want her!” On my next support session with Richmond Fellowship, my Support Worker, my Mum and I went to Willows Cat Adoption Centre and I met Emmy (named Jennifer at the Centre). I think that the first thing you see when you look at Emmy is her markings; that little ginger stripe down her nose! I fell in love and before I knew it, she was in the pink pet carrier on my knee coming home!!
So when I saw that the owner of Willows was celebrating her 50th year rescuing animals, I jumped at the chance to collaborate on a little project with them!
This year, anyone who raises fifty pounds can have their name entered into a raffle to be drawn in September 2019 where the Golden Ticket will mean a ‘Private Party’ in the centre with all of the cat!
