~ Lorna and Ryleigh ~

Over a year ago, Lorna and Ryleigh met for the first time. Since then, they have formed a beautiful bond and have helped each other through so much. Every day is infinitely better just by being together. 

For while, Lorna had been fostering kittens from her local SPCA. Just before Christmas 2020, as she was dropping off a kitten, she left with two brothers, Fred and George. They both had tummy bugs which had to be monitored for a week. After recovering, they both showed their true colours; George was very confident and wanted a lot of attention. Fred, on the other hand, was a combination of energetic and calm. It didn’t take long before Lorna knew that Fred had found his forever home with her, and so, she renamed him Ryleigh. 

Having Ryleigh has been life-changing for Lorna. When things are difficult, Lorna knows she always has her feline friend right there. On dark days, he’s her ray of sunshine. Recently, Lorna went through a big life change, and having Ryleigh really helped her through it. Even when he’s being a bit naughty, Ryleigh never fails to bring a smile to his human’s face and can always brighten her day. 

Due to Ryleigh’s calm nature, Lorna hopes that, one day, he can be a therapy cat. He’s even harness trained, which has allowed him to join his human at work, where, of course, he was a hit. Everyone he meets, he can always brighten their day.

Both Lorna and Ryleigh enjoy playing together and going on adventures. She especially loves watching Ryleigh as he explores his surroundings and experience new things. Recently, they even went to the beach together. There, he was fascinated with the ocean and the waves as they splashed ashore. Seeing him take such an interest in the simple things helps Lorna to appreciate them, too. 

As well as this, having just moved house, to take in their new neighbourhood, Lorna and Ryleigh go on car rides together. While Lorna has a cup of coffee, she and her feline friend people and bird watch. This is time they get to simply enjoy each other’s company and the serenity of sitting there together. 

It’s obvious just how much Lorna and Ryleigh have impacted each other. Through thick and thin, they know they have one another to help them through anything. The love and happiness they share has been life-changing, and they will only continue to flourish together.
