I know it’s Monday but the weekend passed by so quickly so maybe it’s not such a bad idea with a cat post after all. This post I planned to write ages ago.
When we first heard of Bowser a couple of years ago, we couldn’t resist him. He looked so cute and had the best personality ever, more like a dog than a cat. He was living with a family with 2 children and when the youngest one was diagnosed with asthma he had to move. We decided to take care of him and we really thought that he would get a long with Yoshi and Tanuki, but that was easier said than done. Yoshi and Tanuki have been living together since they were kittens and they are very close friends. For several years we thought it would get better, but it didn’t. Yoshi was too dominant and Bowser was ganged up on by both Yoshi and his partner in crime Tanuki. Bowser had a hard time to move freely without beeing chased by the others. We tried with play therapy and all sorts of tricks, but it just didn’t get better. Finally, even though our hearts were breaking, we decided to not be so selfish anymore and last Christmas he was welcomed with open arms by my parents in law who had come to love the sweet cat during the years, as he often stayed with them when we were visiting. The first time without dear Bowser was really hard, with lot of tears and emtpyness. But it was the best solution for all cats, and us. Yoshi and Tanuki became the cosy unstressed cats they had been earlier and Bowser started his new calm and perfect life. He living a very happy life on a small island without cars, he has his own cat door and no other cats at home. The only cats he meets are the ones coming into his garden and he chases them straight away. He is truly loved by my parents in law and he loves being with them. Just look at the photos, doesn’t he look like a super happy cat?
