~ Emily and Pablo ~
Some years ago, Emily welcomed Pablo into her life. Since then, they have changed each other’s lives for the better and have brought endless joy and unconditional love into every single day.
Emily has always been passionate about animals. When she was contacted by a rescue in Romania about two kittens, she jumped at the chance to adopt them. Both of the kittens had been diagnosed with cerebellar hypoplasia. As she lives in the UK, Emily had only seen photos and been told about their personalities, however, she couldn’t say no to their sweet little faces!
Before long, the kittens, Bones and Pablo, were on a plane to start their journey towards their new forever home. When they arrived, Emily recalls the, being a bit stinky from their trip, but were very affectionate and very thankful to now have their own family. They were perfect for her.
Wanting to share these kittens with the world, Emily decided to start an Instagram account to share their adventures. They gained many new friends through their page, people – and cats – followed their daily lives and wanted to learn more. Sadly, however, Bones unexpectedly passed away in 2020. Emily and Pablo were heartbroken at this sudden loss. But thankfully, they had each other to lean on for love and support.
Having Pablo has changed Emily’s life hugely. As she adopted him just before the Covid-19 pandemic, he kept her company. Pablo will always be right there by her side. He became like a colleague to her – one who would often nap while working! No matter what, he can always bring a smile to his human’s face.
Not only has Pablo impacted Emily, but also so many others within their community and through social media. By simply being himself, Pablo is an amazing spokescat for other animals with disabilities. He shows others that having a disability doesn’t stop him from living his best life. People have reached out to Emily for advice and, with the help of her feline friend, has even inspired others to adopt a furbaby with a disability.
The impact that Emily and Pablo have had on one another has been huge. Every day, they bring endless joy and unconditional love into each other’s lives.
