We’ve had a lovely Christmas with lots of extra time at home to hang out with the residents and current rescues, and also to delight in the updates and season’s greetings from our past rescue (furry) people.
First to check in were Alfie and Aoife from the A Team. They were very excited about their first Christmas, loving the tree and looking forward to all the wrapping paper and turkey on the big day.
Then Bosca texted us a photo of her furry lights
Then lovely Lenny messaged us ….. seems he’d got a little confused about his species …… but there’s no mistaking the fact that he’s gorgeous.
On Christmas Day little (not quite so little now) Nacho sent us a photo of her with her step sister, opening their presents
And then the other two kits from the A Team – Albert & Aslan also messaged. Aslan was blissed out to have got a new toy mouse, whilst Albert was making the most of the holidays to have a snooze
Little Truffle & Toby proudly send their Christmas picture ….. newly settled in to their furever home and loving it
Lenny got more and more excited and sent in a photo of him and his sister Lily, plus their step siblings all dressed up ready for Christmas
Young Floyd rather smugly sent in this photo of him having a Christmas kiss ……. he’s come a long way in a short time has that little boy!
Just to complete the joy, the last and most important member of the A Team – Arwen mummy cat – got her staff to email us. She refused to have her photo taken next to the Christmas tree because she was busy having cuddles …… but condescended to allow a wide shot showing the crib in the background. Bless you Arwen.
These photos have really made our Christmas. It’s not simply that they’re lovely photos and happy memories of adorable furry friends. It’s the knowledge that they’re happy and safe, and having the life that they would never have had had they not come to 8 Lives. Makes all the sleepless nights, and shredded furnishings seem worthwhile really 🙂
