I recently kitty sat for friends who were going to be away over the holidays. A couple of weeks prior, they had adopted Martin (now affectionately known as Martinius) from the Vaughan Animal Services where he had been living since last April in a caged environment.
At four years of age, and having a black and white coat, history tells us that this boy wouldn't have stood very good odds of being adopted out of this environment any time soon (if at all). But that's where this wonderful family enters the picture (never having owned a kitty previously), and felt that Martinius was just the one for them...........age and coat regardless!
He is a total suck and a sweetheart and I was honoured to make his acquaintance. His new family are already spoiling him rotten and it just does my heart a world of good to know that they all received the best Christmas present ever - each other.
