"A few years ago we lost our cat that we had had for 17 years she was from RSPCA as a kitten and was part of our growing family when our children came along.
The children have been asking to have a cat for a while and we have said no as it wasn't the right time up until recently when our daughter saw some kittens at a friend's. After long discussions we needed to agree the right type of cat/cats to fit into our family life. Over a few weeks we decided that we would like 2 cats and I started to look on rspca web sites around the area and surrounding areas.
I found oreo and sparky and showed our family, all instantly falling in love. They were brothers and both were being rehomed together.
At 2 1/2 years old we know we could give them a happy home. I looked at their history and they were suitable to live with children, having a 5 year old he can be loud at times.
The cats were scared at first and spent 2 days huddled together in a basket. We all put hard work in to gain their trust and the children were amazing at being patient.
Now they have found their feet they have are both showing their very different personalities.
They love the outdoors and our garden is an adventure every time they go out. They love cuddles and playing.
We love how they make us laugh and cant imagine being without them.
The RSPCA were fantastic they have kept in touch and any questions or concerns I have had they gave advice and support."
