I loved my owner and he loved me. We had 13 happy years together. But one day things changed...
He began to treat me differently; he stopped feeding and brushing me. He didn't know my name anymore and he didn't recognise me!
He threw me outside and wouldn't let me back in; he shouted at me and told me to 'go away'. I waited.
Days passed - I got thinner and thinner and my coat became heavily matted.
It got colder... Still I waited.
I thought he might remember who I was. And I had nowhere else to go. One day I laid down and found I couldn't get up again. I was so tired and cold, I just wanted to close my eyes and go to sleep.
Before I drifted away, a different human came across me. They look worried; They said I needed help, so they bought me to Raystede. They thought I was a stray. But actually it turns out my owner just couldn't look after me anymore - They told me he has a disease called 'dementia' and he needs other people to take care of him now.
The team at Raystede took care of me; they gave me food and brushed my coat. For the first time in ages I felt safe and loved again!
If it wasn't for Raystede, I don't know where I would be now...
I am one of the lucky ones. But the Raystede cattery is full of cats like me that have been rescued and need a new home.
Raystede can't keep being there without your help.
