Bloggers Help with Paws with a Cause with author Robyn Pierce

I’m proud to say that I am the mommy to my two wonderful fur-babies, Hiroki & Joy!

[Top: Joy; Bottom: Hiroki]
When I met these two furballs, they’d barely opened their eyes. They were two of the 6-kitten litter that my best friend’s brother’s cat had.
Originally, I’d only planned on having one little kitty, and that was Joy. I wanted her because out of the entire litter, there were only two cats that had color on them: Joy [with her single black spot], and another cat we named Symbah [same as Simba] because he was the exact same color as the cub from The Lion King.
Weeks later, when the cats were ready to separate from their mom, Joy was still having trouble adjusting to dry food, but they could no longer keep the kittens, so I had to take her anyway. So the plan was to grab the chubbiest cat in the litter, and have him show her all about eating.
That’s how we came to adopt Roki-man as well.

My mom was initially upset that I took two cats home instead of the agreed-upon one (I still lived with her at the time), but Hiroki grew on her immediately. Not that she had much of a choice. Hiroki was a complete cuddle-bunny, and constantly crawled up onto her lap so he could sleep on her chest. She had no choice but to love him.

Now, they’re all grown up [they’ll be 4 in July] and they are still as sweet as ever, although a bit more mischievous than I’d ever imagined them to be. They love to get into places they don’t have any place being, and they complain quite loudly when we try to take them away from the spot.
They’re also just like me! Quite ‘derp’ and dorky, they constantly demand attention, and they’re the best kittehz I could have ever imagined having.
I absolutely love my furry babies and I couldn’t imagine not having them in my life.

Our dogs change lives by enhancing the independence of our clients. By just opening a door, a dog opens up the world for a person with a disability and your donations will go to making that happen.  PAWS thanks you so much for your donation and allowing us to open more doors.
