It was love at first sight when Georgina Price first laid eyes on Toby. She didn’t only took him home with her but brought his best friend along too!
Toby is a six-year-old cat yet looks much older. He suffers from a condition called “feline cutaneous asthenia” (FCA), which causes his skin to be fragile, loose and get bruised easily. This FCA is similar to its human variant, the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
But happily, superficial traits did not prevent Price from falling in love with the po.or cat.
Price says that she saw them on RSPCA website and they captured her heart immediately. The loving couple visited the shelter and when they first saw them, the duo was hiding behind each other. Price realized that they both were scared of humans.
When the shelter took in the two cats, they were in po.or condition. Quinton had all of his teeth extracted, and Toby underwent a similar operation. From the start, the shelter saw that the two cats shared a very special connection. They needed each other and needed to be adopted together.
The moment Georgina saw them, she knew that they were the ones she wanted to bring home and cherish. She said that they will give them everything they need so they will feel secure.
Together with her fiance, she filled out the necessary paperwork and officially adopted the undivided pair.
Georgina shares that feeding them wasn’t easy. They had to lay the food under the bed leave the room but fortunately, they slowly gained their trust.
As time went on, the two cats began moving around in the open, exploring the house together.
As they slowly realized that they were at safety, they started to relax and open up to their owners. And then, one day, he began to seek affection from his parents. He even discovered cuddles!
Price recalls that these days, they are playful and happy and it’s so rewarding to see the progress they’ve made.
Because of his condition, though, his owners need to be very careful. Toby bruises easily, so they keep the house clean and trim Toby’s nails regularly.
Though it took some time, Quinton and his best friend finally found the home and family they spent so much time searching for.
They only need a little bit of your love to blossom into the beautiful babies they are.
Thank you forever kindness!💗💗
