Calling all cat lovers, and animal lovers out there! We need your help! My fiance Sean and I have to leave the country due to the government not wanting to give me a Visa. To read all about our "Visa journey" use the link I have added for you. Feel free to sign that petition as well if you'd like. All the support is so greatly appreciated, so thank you so much. We want to take our four cats with us when we leave. But this is not going to be a cheap process. We're going to need all the help we can get. Sean and I would be so grateful, for those of you that could help us raise the funds to afford taking the cats with us. If we cant afford taking them, we will have to rehome them. And this we don't want to do. We love the cats with every inch of ourselves. Leaving them here in the UK would just be not nice. Can you imagine life without your pet? Do remember what it was like without them? Neither do I. Raising them was the best thing we ever did. Help us to take the cats on this amazing journey with us.
When I came to live to the UK with my fiance Sean, we knew instantly, that we wanted either a cat or a dog. We started with cats. We are HUGE cat and dog lovers! I have never had a cat before then. Well! Let me tell you about our first cats ( first for me). Gatsby and Jasmine, two black and white short haired (tuxedo style) kittens. Sean and I fell in love with these two the minute we met them. Gatsby named after the Great Gatsby, and Jasmine named after Princess Jasmine of Aladdin. They are brother and sister. They are the cutest cats you'd ever meet, very smart. Jasmine took three months, to come around us and let us touch her and even pick her up. Now she is the cuddliest little cat ever. Gatsby was a very posh, handsome, and intelligent cat. Unfortunately we lost him to a UTI and misscare of a local vet. Gatsby and I were extremely close and losing him ruined my world. My partner and I miss him every day and so does his sister Jasmine. We love you Gatsby!
Jasmine now two years and seven months old, was extremely hurt losing her brother (her best friend). We couldn't see our baby girl hurt like that. She slept in our bed every night and her and I cried at the loss of such a special cat. So, Sean and I decided to get another cat to keep Jasmine company, as now she was all alone (she was the only cat now). So we searched high and low, for a kitten that would best suit Jamsine. And as if Gatsby were helping us from up above, we saw an ad for a little boy kitten looking for a home. That little kitten is now our baby boy Billy BoJangles. Everyday I thank the earth for putting Billy in our arms. He is a beautiful Mackerel Tabby with spots and stripes. He is the sweetest little boy ever. Everyday he gives me kisses and head bops. He suckles on my dressing gown everyday. Billy barely leaves my side. He is the world and more to Jasmine Sean, and I. Jasmine struck it off with Billy so quickly! It was perfect.
They were so happy together that he got Jasmone pregnant! Now Gatsby tried to get Jamine pregnant, but obviously he's her brother so she knew. But Billy on the other hand, did get to give her children! Miracles happen people! Jasmine on July 10th, 2018, gave birth to five beautiful children (kittens). Unfortunately the next day we lost one, the only one that looked like Billy, as the rest resembled their mother Jasmine. His name was Billy Jr of course. We miss you dearly honey! So then there were four kittens. Two we placed in amazing homes and two... WE KEPT! Not only were we blessed with four kittens (one in heaven), but Sean and I decided to keep two of them. I've always wanted a bunch of cats, absolute dream of mine. You take on a lot of responsibility when having four cats in your home but Sean and I knew it was meant to be. The happiest day of my life is when Jasmine gave birth to those beautiful babies.
The two we kept we knew from day one, had to stay. We couldn't choose just one lol. Meet Chunky and Stardust! Chunky was named that because he is a chunky boy! Chunky is literally a spitting image of Jasmines brother in heaven, Gatsby. He looks exactly like him but a little bit different. Given their similarities, instantly I was reminded of Gatsby, and what a blessing Chunky is. He is such a cuddly little kitten. Chunkys brother Stardust, is all black with two white patches (one below his neck, and one on his lower belly). Stardust is named that, because is is a proper black cat. My fiance Sean and I always said he looked spooky in a cute way. So we didn't want to name him something too dark. Stardust was perfect, and heck does he live up to his name.
Man, everyday is great as long as our cats, our children are a part of it. We have thought long and hard about what life would be like without them, and don't see how we would enjoy these months and maybe even years away from our cats. They wouldn't enjoy it either. All the playing we do, the treats, the cuddles and the kisses. Imagine not having the things you love most in life. I cry just thinking about it. My fiance thinks and thinks of ways we could take them. But, the list of expenses is extensive and expensive. Any help, even a pound would be grately appreciated by Sean, me, Billy, Jasmine, Dusty, and Chunky, and heck the cats in heaven. These cats are awesome, we want to take them so bad! They are a huge part of our lives, and we wouldn't have it any other way. It would be awesome to tell the cats "whose up for a road trip, cause you guys are going to be travelling with mom and dad!" I like to think they'd be happy that we're all together! One big happy family. Thank you so much! Share this story and the link we have added with anyone and everyone you know. Let's spead this like wildfire! Sean and I love our cats and wouldn't ever want to leave them.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Share this to everyone you know and help us meet our goal! Let's do it, you guys are the best :)
Sean, Jess, and the boops! XO
