Hi, my name is Alfie (formerly Star) and I will be two in May. I arrived at Assisi in July 2009 along with my sister Sophie and brother Skipper – I was the best looking!
We were only there a few days when Shelley brought a couple into the kitten enclosure. The lady looked very sad so I put my paw out of the cage to touch her and her face lit up in a big smile, I do have a way about me! Shelley said “no need to pick a kitten he has picked you” (I was very clever). I went home to live in Belfast with my new mum and dad, who are called Iris & John Shannon and I just love it here. I only eat chicken, cat munchies and drink cat milk I have got really big on this diet.
They have had other cats before me but I think I am their favourite! There is a picture on the windowsill of a ginger cat called Molly, she was knocked down and killed in July 2009 and that was why my mummy was so sad. I don’t go on the road I just play in the gardens with my best friends Ginger, Willow and Tabby. I sleep with my mummy and I leave lovely big dirty paw marks on her bed but she doesn’t get cross with me. She says I make her happy.
Thank you Assisi for finding my new parents and aren’t they just so lucky to have me!! Love to all my friends at Assisi.
Ps: I have sent you a picture so you can see how handsome I am with beautiful amber eyes.
