Topple, A Special Kitty
On the 17th of April 2010…… 10 years ago today.. a beautiful boy was born.
Topple was a special kitty in more ways than you can imagine.
When he was born it was a very traumatic birth process and his umbilical cord became entangled around his neck causing
hypoxia, (starvation of oxygen to his brain)
The volunteers had to act very quickly to not only save his life but his mummys life too.
His mum was in intensive care for several weeks and Topple was hand reared.
Topple was left with a condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia which means he constantly wobbles and appears drunk when he walks.
For every one who knows him, Topple is a very happy chappy and loves every one he meets though he is very sensitive to those he is close to.
Topple has always lived at the rescue in his family home and worked hard making many public appearances as BCWR Mascot and he also brings joy to others as he works as a PAT (Pets as Therapy) Cat.
Topple became quite a celebrity cat at various venues and every one who meets him loves him.
During fundraising events he is the star attraction especially at several Pets At Home stores including Bradford, Birstall, Meanwood and Guiseley where he managed to woo all the ladies.
Topple, has always loved to be the centre of attention at all our events.
Following his diagnosis Topple’s condition declined rapidly and on the 2nd November 2016 Topple lost his fight.
Topple and I had such a special bond.
When i was upset he provided comfort, when i was ill he became ill.
No one knew him or loved him like I did,
Topple was my little lad, my sunshine, my everything….. my life will never be the same.
TOPPLE was known and loved for his big personality and even bigger heart.
Topples legacy lives on.
