~ Chloe and Felix ~
Six years ago, Chloe met Felix. From the very first moment they met, Chloe knew he was the perfect cat for her family. Since then, they have formed a very special bond.
Chloe had been wanting to adopt a cat for a while and decided to visit a local shelter in Birkenhead, New Zealand. She met a friendly and quirky moggy who instantly stood out to her. As soon as they met, she knew he was coming home with her. So, Chloe adopted him then and there and named him Felix.
Not long after adopting Felix was it apparent he had some health issues. He had pneumonia which very nearly took his life. Seeing him go through this was immensely difficult for Chloe, but she stayed by his side through everything. Thankfully, Felix pulled through and he continues to fill his human’s day with endless joy and laughter with his antics.
Having Felix has impacted Chloe’s life hugely. The last few years have presented her with a lot of challenges, namely experiencing recurrent pregnancy losses. However, Felix, and Chloe’s other cat, Ziggy, were always there to comfort her. When she was feeling especially defeated, Felix would snuggle up and remind her that she wasn’t alone. When Chloe had her children, Felix immediately accepted them into his heart. This meant the world to her.
Not only has Felix had an impact on Chloe and her family, but also their whole neighbourhood. When he first moved into the neighbourhood, he enjoyed learning from the resident tomcat. Now, Felix has taken on that role. He is often seen protecting his territory – and the local female cats – and meeting with friends. Recently, a new kitten moved in. Felix has taken it upon himself to teach his new friend all his tricks and train him to become the next tomcat.
The bond that Chloe and Felix share is so special. They have brought so much joy and love into each other’s lives through simply being there. Chloe saved Felix as a kitten, and Felix helped Chloe through her darkest times.
