AD. Back when Thomas and I moved into our first home together, we knew that we wanted a cat. Shortly after we saw a friend was going to have a litter of kittens soon and we promptly put our name down for the cat that would become Izzy! For several years it was just Izzy and us before Jasmine joined our pet family too! Then we had a baby, in 2016, and having pets was no longer all I had to keep me busy while working from home.
I’ve been a cat owner since 2010. Izzy came to join our family back in 2010 when we first moved in to our flat together. Izzy was offered to us free, by an old friend of my husband, right at a time we were debating getting a pet. It seemed like fate. Later on we learned that Izzy has a big heart problem, and a heart murmur that is at the top end of the severity grades. Anyway, this has meant numerous expense over the years (as she was born with the condition it couldn’t be insured) but we love her so we soldier on. Recently I had my first experience of taking my cat to the vet for an emergency.
