What began as an innocent mistake changed my life forever.  

Shortly after moving to the UK, I took in a homeless cat that kept appearing on my doorstep.  Probably because I kept feeding her. Over time, I fell completely in love, only to discover nearly a year later that she was actually the neighbor's cat.  

Luckily, we all became good friends, the neighbor, the cat and me, and even though I no longer live in the UK, that cat hasn't left my heart.  

Since then, I've been wandering around the world with my partner Perry, visiting cat cafes, and trying to forget my beloved fur baby.
