When I left the family home to become a grown up, I also left behind my three cats I had had since I was a child, (Parents said a flat no to parting with them!) So i decided to Re Home one from a cat Rescue Centre.

I made a phonecall and gave my critera as "just one that needs a home" and Went to see Lucy.The lady said that this little lady was having a lot of trouble finding a home due to her her being very bad tempered, and seen as I had no children or other pets maybe I could give her a go.?Lucy was just left behind when her previous owners moved, and by all accounts had not been shown any affection at all.

Well, I went to see her and bad tempered was an understatment!This pussy cat had obviousley had an extemley hard time of it. Lucy hissed and spat at me, bit me when I stroked her and wouldnt even look at me other than to commit random acts of violence..So I took her home, knowing that the possibility of her finding a nice home was very very slim!

It took a week of love, to stop the aggression, about a month for her to learn she was welcome on my bed, and within 8 weeks she turned into the most affectionate little moggy I had ever known!...always by my side, meowing for attention, she now just nips a little when she gets all exited during a love, stamps like a little tiger when gettin comfy on my lap! she purrs like a motorbike constantley! She has her moments, but they are rare,and usually only if she is woken up! She even gets on with her new friend I rehomed about 18 months after.
