~ Rose Mary and Scooter ~

At the end of 2018, Rose Mary met Scooter, a handsome Siamese kitten. They have changed each other’s lives hugely since then and continue to bring love and joy to every day. 

On December 22nd of 2018, Rose Mary was told about a small Siamese kitten who had been found wandering around behind trash cans. She decided to then meet with the kitten who was found to be incontinent and had been paralysed from the waist down. As soon as Rose Mary met him, she instantly fell in love and offered to foster him. However, it wasn’t long before she knew he was a perfect companion and decided to adopt him and name him Scooter. 

Less than a year later, an unexpected incident occurred during a procedure for Scooter. He suffered a punctured urethra, was passing blood, wasn’t eating and seemed to be in a lot of pain. As well as this, he was given a terminal diagnosis with a 0% survival rate, yet Scooter wasn’t about to accept that. He fought, with Rose Mary by his side, and after a long journey, he not only survived but is now thriving. His strength and bravery never cease to amaze his human. 

Having Scooter has changed Rose Mary’s life hugely. Every day, he provides her with endless joy and unconditional love. It’s this love that empowers Rose Mary to be the best version of herself. She ensures that Scooter knows just how loved he is in return, too. 

The courage and compassion Scooter shows everyone around him is inspiring to Rose Mary. No matter who he meets, human, cat or dog, he is always a welcoming host, especially when meeting a new rescue friend. When out and about, Scooter is a great advocate for animals with disabilities. He continuously proves that simply having a disability doesn’t make him any less of a cat and that he can still live a full and happy life. 

Both Rose Mary and Scooter enjoy going on their daily walks. Being able to explore the world around him and meet new friends is something he always looks forward to. At the end of each day, both he and Rose Mary have their own nightly routine. Scooter will groom himself – and briefly Rose Mary – before bed, then does some biscuit making and finally, lays his head down on his human’s arm and purrs himself to sleep. 

The impact that both Rose Mary and Scooter have had on each other has been huge. They’ve both faced their own struggles but, together, they have gotten through it all and fill each and every day with love and happiness.
