Happy Birthday Coco!

Thought i’d do a blog on my cat Coco as it’s her birthday today!  I can’t believe she’s 17 years old!


I was helping out at a cat sanctuary quite a few years back and ended up coming home with two cats.  I remember sitting in the pen, Coco came over and immediately sat on my lap and purred so loudly.

About three months later I visited the cat sanctuary where I originally got Coco from.  I had a spare mini fridge that I no longer wanted and they were going to use it to store medication for the animals.  I again mentioned about Coco missing.

About a week later, I had a call from the cat sanctuary.  A family had found a tortoiseshell cat.  They said they thought she was about a year old (Coco was about 9 at the time), but I thought, it just could be her, you never know!

I drove to this beautiful house, and was shown around the back.  They opened the shed door and out popped this tiny tortoiseshell cat.  I looked and looked again.  Yes, it was her!!!  She went to run off and I shouted her name.  She stopped in her tracks, turned around and stared at me.  I picked her up and gave her a great big hug.  She was back, but had lost so much weight!

I took her home and she fell asleep on her back with her legs in the air.  I still treasure the photograph I took of her (see below). She was exhausted!

Here’s Coco checking out a hedgehog and wondering why it is eating her cat food!


And here is a gorgeous photograph of Coco at Sunrise


When I come home from work i’m always greeted with lots of meows.  If you have animals, you’ll know how special they are!

Happy birthday Coco and let’s hope for many more!!!
