~ Renee and Locky ~

Several years ago, Renee welcomed little kitten, Locky, into her life. Ever since then, they have formed a very special bond. 

One day, Renee saw a photo of a kitten on the Franklin Cat Rescue Facebook page. She immediately fell in love with his face and asked to meet him. Soon, she and her husband, Joe, were on their way to meet the kitten. 

Upon arrival, they were taken into a room full of cats and kittens. Not long after, a cat ran into Renee’s leg. When she looked down, she realised it was the same cat she saw on the Facebook page. She picked him up and he snuggled right into her arms. There was no doubt in her mind this was definitely her cat. 

Renee has a heart condition that can cause some challenges in her daily life. As well as this, in 2021, she sustained a concussion and has been slowly recovering. Throughout the tough times, Locky has always been right there for her. No matter what, he never fails to brighten her day. 

During Renee’s recovery from her concussion, Locky was never far away. He comforted her and provided her with a constant source of entertainment! Having Locky brings so much happiness into Renee and Joe’s lives. 

Not only does he always bring a smile to Renee’s face, but Locky is always there for a hug. Whenever she holds him, he will happily curl up into her arms. He is a very loving cat and often reminds Renee of her late mother. 

When Renee and Joe go for walks, Locky sometimes enjoys going along with them. He will happily trot alongside them, as well as exploring what others are up to in his neighbourhood. Locky and Renee also share a love of food, which they love to bond over!

Locky has had such a huge impact on Renee and he brings her endless joy. He has made Renee and Joe feel more like a family and is like a son to them both. The love that both Locky and Renee share is truly special.
