In a few short words/sentences, tell us about your cat's personalities.
Bryson is a very determined kitty. He is extremely headstrong and will let us know when he wants to go for a walk or eat. He can be really affectionate particularly when he first wakes up, before bed, or prior to a feed. He can be quite clingy depending on what the adventure is.
How has your cat transformed your life from the moment you've met him till now?
As Bryson is our priority, everything we do we consider how he will take to it. We do more as we’ve worked out that Bryson thoroughly enjoys the various adventures he’s been exposed to. He brings us so much joy and an incredible amount of pride for his achievements.
What does your cat mean to you?
As we don’t have kids, Bryson is our priority. Bryson tags along on all our holidays, so for us, it’s important to expose him to as many different experiences as possible. Sharing our experiences with Bryson is our priority, both in a day to day scenario and a holiday one.
How did you and your cat first meet? Tell it to us in the form of a short story.
We lost our beautiful Burmese boy Duke in June 2018 just shy of his 21st birthday. He was a beautiful cat with a loving personality and soul. As we had a wonderful experience with a Burmese boy we opted to go down the same path, only this time we wanted to take the adventurous side of things a go, given our love for the outdoors. We did a lot of research into breeders and opted for a wonderful breeder in Kocicka Burmese.
When we driving to pick Bryson up we were ridden with guilt as it was only 4 months after our Duke passed away. But when we first laid eyes on Bryson we were extremely overwhelmed and sat with him cuddling extremely emotional. He warmed up to us right away tucking himself under Arthur’s chin. The breeder stated that she’d never seen a kitten instantly bond with their owners like Bryson did on that day. From there, our adventures began.
What do you think your cat thinks of you?
To us, Bryson sees us as a meal ticket, an adventure companion and a snuggle buddies.
Your cat is part of your family. What are some things they do that make you think that she considers you part of theirs?
Bryson likes to have us around him all the time. Whether it’s when Danielle works from home he’ll sit on the desk next to her laptop or when we go to bed Bryson is there with us. Even at times he’ll sit on the bed and call us to join him! Bryson sits on our table when we eat our dinner (we guess it’s not everyone’s favourite thing, but we don’t mind).
What are some accounts your cats like to follow on Instagram?
Why do you feel that it is important to show the world that Cats are Family?
Absolutely cats are family. Any pet in our eyes is family. We believe if you’re going to have the privilege of introducing a cat to your family it should be done whole-heartedly and not half-hearted. That’s why we share all our experiences with Bryson.
