TO A LOVED RESCUE
Lilia was rescued from Blacktown Pound
by my friends at Purr-fect Match in March.
We had the pleasure of her wonderful
company for 9 months.
Lilia had assumed the chief role as
resident mascot in our ExeCATive
Lounge. We loved her so much and all my
rescue mates knew that she had stolen a
big piece of our heart. I think they all
thought we would keep Lilia with us and
believe me that would have been the easy
thing to do. Leon absolutely adored her.
I had a vision of the type of forever home I
wanted for Lilia and I'm happy to say that
my expectation has been met and
exceeded. Another success story...

My family abandoned me 9 out of 10 people adopt a kitten.
but I’m not sure why.. Only 1 out of 10 adopts an adult cat.
They just could not keep me
so they said goodbye…
My time is running out and
I’m not sure how much
longer I can stay,
But my paws are crossed
that perhaps this day will
be my lucky day!
I rub my head upon my cage
and purr and purr away…
