~ Sharon, Clementine, Olive, Calvin and Archie ~

Some years ago, Sharon welcomed Clementine into her life. Not long after this did Sharon welcome Olive, then Calvin, and lastly, Archie. Since then, they have all formed a very special bond and have brought so much love and joy into each other’s lives. 

When Sharon’s daughter lost her 18-year-old cat, Scamp, they were devastated. Wanting to provide a home to another feline friend, Sharon did some searching. Then, she came across a Sphynx kitten named Clementine and it was love at first sight. From the kitten’s little fuzzy face to her chipmunk cheeks, there was no doubt in Sharon’s mind this was the perfect addition to their family. Within the month, they made the four-hour trip to adopt the kitten!

A few years later, Sharon wanted to adopt a friend for Clementine to keep her company when the humans were out. It was then that she came across a one-year-old Devon Rex cat, named Olive, who was retiring from breeding. Once again, it was love at first sight for Sharon! She organised the eight-hour car drive to New York to adopt Olive and, once they returned, she and Clementine instantly became friends. 

In November of 2021, a friend of Sharon’s messaged her about two Sphynx brothers who were looking for a home together. Sharon immediately said yes and, from that moment, they had their forever home. One of the brothers, Calvin, was full of beans and always ready to play. Archie on the other hand was a lot more relaxed and loved curling up with his new human.

Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Clementine, Olive, Calvin and Archie comforted and supported Sharon. They provided her with a sense of companionship during this period. As well as this, the kitty quartet are leash trained, which meant that they could go out and about to get some fresh air together. 

Living with four cats, Sharon is now a full-time stay-at-home cat mum. Each day, she has to clean her kitty quartet, brush their teeth every other day and give them a bath once a week. It’s a lot of work, but absolutely worth it to Sharon. Clementine, Olive, Calvin and Archie mean the world to their human and bring endless joy to her life. 

Having Clementine, Olive, Calvin and Archie has allowed Sharon to express her passion for photography. Every so often, they do photoshoots. All the kitties enjoy posing, especially Olive, and getting dressed up. After every shoot, they are all rewarded with many, many treats – which is always a highlight for them!

The bond that Sharon has formed with Clementine, Olive, Calvin and Archie is truly special. They have all helped each other through some of the toughest times and bring so much love and joy into every day.
