Pet Post - My Kitten Milo.
Here is my lovely boy, Milo! He's a 10 month old kitten who we rescued from our local RSPCA centre.
We had recently bought our first house and I'd always had a cat when I lived with my mum, so I knew I wanted to adopt one myself.
Our local RSPCA centre have a "Pets for Adoption" blog page, where you can see photos and read about all of the animals who are looking for a new home.
Last September, not long after we had moved into our new house, I noticed this advert on the cats adoption page...
Poor Cinnamon - he looked so sad and lonely! I just had to make an appointment to go and see him as soon as possible.
When I got to the centre and saw him he was much smaller than I expected - he was around 4 months old. He was so scared and nervous that he jumped away as soon as the lady handed him to me, accidently scramming me on his way down.
He hid under a little blue plastic chair and shivered for the rest of the time we were there - he had obviously been treated badly by his previous owner. We were told that he was rescued with his brothers and sisters after they were abandoned and he was the last one of his litter to be left at the centre, waiting for a new home.
I had some reservations about his age - I've seen lots of crazy kittens climbing curtains and wrecking furniture! But he was just so sweet... So we took him home :)
We decided that Cinnamon was a bit of a long name, and named him Milo instead. (Although I now know that Raj's dog on The Big Bang Theory is called Cinnamon - so funny!)
Milo loves to sit and watch football on TV!
He was extremely nervous of people at first but has improved amazingly! He is still nervous of visitors but will now sit on our lap and loves a good smooth - especially under his chin.
He gets up to all sorts of mischief!
People often comment on his slightly large ears!! But he's just the cutest :)
In my opinion, a pet provides great company - I often chat away to him as if he understands...
It is a responsibility though! My sister tried to persuade me to also adopt his friend at the centre who he shared a little house with, but I knew that buying two lots of cat food might be a little too expensive - it's not cheap after all.
It's been amazing to see how well he has come along in the last few months. He has grown a lot! I love being a cat owner - Milo does something that makes me laugh at least once every single day! x
