Marilyn’s cat Mitzi was feeling lonely after her other cat crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Mitzi had started to change his behaviour due to being alone during the daytime and Marilyn decided it was time to bring home another kitty.
Marilyn knew she wanted to adopt adorable Ali as soon as she saw her on VOKRA’s website. Ali had been adopted before but was surrendered when her previous adopter became pregnant. Marilyn had a feeling Ali and Mitzi would get along. “I was a bit apprehensive about how Mitzi would react, but he was so lonely,” said Marilyn. “He gave her a big kiss when they met and they’ve been inseparable ever since.”
Even though they have different personalities, Mitzi and Ali are best friends. “Even though I have two separate cat perches, they often share the same one,” adds Marilyn “I was also pleased to see that my senior cat Mitzi, 14 years old, now still likes to initiate the same chasing, playing and wrestling games with Ali that he enjoyed with his previous companion cat. Ali will sometimes groom Mitzi’s face and he looks totally blissed when she does this.”
Now Ali has a loving home, Mitzi has a kitty friend and Marilyn has two happy cats. “Mitzi is very talkative, with a loud meow, and always has lots to say when I get home,” said Marilyn. “Ali is very affectionate and quiet; her meow is more like a ‘squeak’…and she likes to cuddle next to me on the couch.”
We’re so happy for Marilyn, Ali and Mitzi and wish them many wonderful years together!
