AFTER MEETING A STRAY KITTEN IN A COFFEE SHOP A MAN RETURNED EACH DAY TO SEE HER. ONE DAY, SHE DECIDED SHE WAS GOING TO FOLLOW HIM HOME!
Basil Akwan frequents a local coffee shop almost every day. In doing so he is always greeted by a friendly feline in the form of a very cute calico. Quickly becoming attached to her, he began bringing her treats on his visits, soon giving her the name Sophie.
“I used to go to the same coffee shop every day and saw her there,” said Basil.
During Basil’s frequent visits, Sophie would spend her time napping on the bench, always purring away. Getting to the point where she would even accompany Basil when he brought friends.
It wasn’t long till she began following him around, in the process practically becoming his shadow.
It dawned on Basil that Sophie was a stray and had no home to call her own. When she mustered up the courage to jump into his car he knew it was a sign.
First on the list for Basil after Sophie lept into his car was a trip to the vet, after a good report she was then on her way to her forever home.
“(On her first day home), she was a bit nervous, sniffing everything but I think she felt safe since I was there with her,” said Basil.
Now Basil wakes up every morning only to see his faithful sidekick staring right at him waiting to be fed.
Being young, Sophie had plenty of energy, which she spends most of her day burning off creating mayhem around the house. Then peace quickly descends as she takes her nap all cuddled up to her new dad
Having followed her dad to be into his car, Sophie transitioned to following Basil everywhere around the house. When he is at his PC, she is right there on his lap. When he is sunbathing she is right there by his side, watching the day go by.
“She is extremely playful and I get her toys all the time (to keep her busy). The best part is she has adjusted well to my lifestyle,” said Basil. Or is he simply adjusting Sophies?
Outgoing as a stray cat, Sophie has not lost any of her personality in her new home. She has truly blossomed into a beautiful cat, in the process becoming Basil’s loyal friend. Never ceasing to put a smile on his face.
“I love her so much. She’s the best thing that happened to me.”
