Jenny Brown

Jenny Brown you turned my world upside down.

Our first meeting was Saturday the 26th of January 2019 at 11am. I was doing foster care training at Maggie’s Rescue in Marrickville. You were the resident feline, your home for 15 months and counting, yet to find your purr-rect match. I fell for you that day. But your profile requested that your adoptive parent / parents have a garden.

Residing in an apartment on the fourth floor I did not push the issue.

The staff at Maggie’s remarked that I was an unlikely foster carer – ‘ You won’t be able to do it’ and by that they meant I would adopt straight away. I tended to agree with them.

In February I suffered a health set-back. During that time Maggie’s Rescue contacted me, two cats, brothers, needed a home. I was not well enough to take them on.

My health returned and I was offered a mother and her two kittens, I knew I could not take on multiple responsibilities so I had to turn them down.

And all the while I checked the ‘ Cats for Adoption’ Maggie’s Rescue page and you Jenny Brown, with garden request, remained unhomed.

Fast forward to July and I received a message from Sue Mariani of Maggie’s to ask if I was interested in looking after a 2 year old female cat called JB. Aware I had no to every offer Sue had extended me since May I said ‘ Yes’ without hesitation. I admit that after the exchange with Sue I snuck a look at the Maggie’s website to see if you Ms Brown were still looking for a home. Your profile was no longer live. I assumed you’d had found your happy ever after.

Two hours passed, I decided to ask for more information about the feline who would soon in be my care – ‘ Can you send across any photos? Does the JB stand for anything’

The photos appeared. In an instant I recognised this tortoise shell beauty as my Jenny Brown.

‘ What about the garden request?’ I asked Sue via email.

Turns out the garden option was no longer top of Jenny Brown’s requirements. Instead love, affection and a stable home environment were number one priorities.

That was 5 weeks ago.

And I’m ready to adopt, I’ve got the papers ready to sign!

Jenny Brown you have turned my world upside down.

Love you xx

    Jenny Brown you have the most angelic face! I feel like those bright eyes see directly into souls.

    I have known your human for many many years and I can tell you that she is hilarious, kind and enormously good fun. I think you two will get along famously together.

    I very much look forward to hearing of the Jenny & Kate Escapades to come.
