The travel bug must be spreading around The Lost Dogs’ Home, as we recently received an update on yet another one of our globe-trotting pussycats! Sasha was adopted from the Home nearly two years ago by Ebonny and her husband David and has since made a big journey up north to live in chilly Germany. Here, Ebonny shares the story of how Sasha came to be in their lives.
I have always lived in a home where I was surrounded by animals, so when I moved out of home over a year ago, it was a big adjustment not having any animals with me every day. After much deliberation, my partner and I decided to adopt a cat from The Lost Dogs’ Home. I have supported the Home for many years and since I was living in Victoria, I could actually visit and see firsthand the difference The Lost Dogs’ Home is making to help animals in need.
We visited the North Melbourne location and the first cat that we were greeted by was Sasha. She was very smoochy and seemed like she was eager to go home with us, so there was no doubt we were going to adopt her.
Since being adopted, Sasha has been enjoying her new life ruling the roost. Her favourite place is under the dining room table where she can watch everything that is happening and play with her favourite toy, a hedgehog. Sasha has become part of the family and we couldn’t imagine life without her. She has picked up a quirky habit which involves her waiting for you to get out of the shower so she can groom your wet legs. She also enjoys playing hide and seek; she has a very playful nature.
My husband, Sasha and I have now relocated to Germany for two years. Sasha has settled in quite well, she misses living in a house with a backyard though (Germany is full of apartments) and she took some time getting used to the different seasons. We are now experiencing winter and she has puffed right up for the freezing temperatures.
I hope that people can continue to enrich their lives by adopting animals in need. The love you receive from an animal is unconditional and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
