Meet Forest – The Cat, The Myth, The Legend.

Meet Forest The Cat !

Meet Forest. He’s a gorgeous cat with little legs and a big heart who came into our lives when he won the Me & My Pets ‘Best Friends’ competition a little while back. Since then, we have been getting to know little Forest and learning all about his home, The Cat Haven.

Forest-at-home-in-his-cat-bed

Run by the lovely Sarah Pressler and her husband Jay, the Cat Haven cares for around 15 different cats – most of whom face some sort of challenge in their lives. Sarah has devoted her life to caring for these beautiful creatures and gives them the unconditional love and attention that they need and deserve every day.

An inspiration to many (as demonstrated by his scores of adoring fans on Facebook) Forest has so many fantastic qualities. He is sensitive, caring, brilliant and never gives up. At three years of age, Forest has spent most of his life living with hydrocephalus – a condition which means he can’t get about very well and needs help with daily tasks such as eating. He does however, have no problem showing his love, care and affection for others and regularly takes younger cats under his paw to give them the help and support they need.

Full of surprises, Forest wears his heart on his sleeve (next to his rather snazzy pants) and has so much to give. A bit of a purrlebrity, Forest stars in many a Facebook film and some of his finest moments have been captured on camera for all to see. Some of our favourites include: Forest’s Playtime, Forest Has Dinner In His Man Cave, Forest Goes Exploring and finally, Forest’s Spa Day – where Forest gets given a bath.

The Me & My Pets team was desperate to know more and find out exactly who’s behind all the adorable red carpet pics and Oscar winning moments. Luckily, Forest found some time for us in his busy schedule and very kindly answered our most purressing questions!

So Forest – tell us about yourself!

How has your life changed since finding fame?

I tries not to letz the fame go to my head and I certainly not getting onto too much catnipz like sum famous peoples, I too sensible fur that but it has changez my life a bit. I has to be well dressed and clean furs at all times now and mum constantly taking da photos and videos. I obviously has to keeps my fans happy and they get sad if I not doos at least one post a day.

How do you get along with the other cats?

What is your favourite food?

Well my favourite foods bees pretty much anyfink actually, mum says I da bestest eater cuz I not fussy at all. We is all fed premium 100% meat/offal wet food only and I enjoys chicken, ham and we all lubs treat time in da evening cuz everyone lubs naughty foods.

Who are your best friends?

I very sociable but my favourite furiends are Eva, Tabitha and Jeeves cuz them all comes as tiny kittens and I raises them myself. I really lubs little ones best. Jeeves growed much bigger than me but he still comes fur a cuddle, da big lump.

Is there anyone that is jealous of your fame? How do you deal with the haterz?

I not sure if anyone is jealous but sometimes people say fings like "it's cruel to keeps me alive" or "poor thing" or they has a go at mum fur putting me in nappies. We are lovers not fighters here at Our Cat Haven so we jus block them and ignore it, but often before mum gets chance to block them my fans have totally put them straight and gives them a right telling off. Sadly peoples can be ignorant and not learn about me first. Lots of people take the time to learn and see how happy I am though and then hopefully spread da word fur other disabled kitties.

What upcoming movies will you be starring in?

I looking forward to sum zombie Halloween movies as I lubs chasing my brofurs and sistfurs especially sneaking up on da deaf ones. I finks I might doos a spa day movie again where I has a full baff, hairdryer and nail clips too as fans lubs seeing how brave I am, I lubs spa dayz.

Any love interests or are you far too busy?

I actually has 3 beautiful girlfriend's cuz I'm a cat it's ok to has more than one. I has Maddie a beautiful Tortie who has rear end paralysis and wears pants just like me. She lives in America. She sends me pants that match hers like my Halloween ones. Tahlia who has hydrocephalus likes me and lives in Kent in England she's a beautiful tortie and white girl too. Cucumber is a beautiful tabby and white girl with cerebellar hypoplasia and a very special nose because she has cleft palate. Cucumber lives in America too. I very lucky and we chats a lot, them all has special kitty brofurs and sistfurs too.

What is your favourite way to spend a day?

I loves nothing more than eating and sleeping in my man cave or on my special sofa bed. In summer I lubs walks on da harness in da garden and I do lubs a game of feather stick. I lubs mummy cuddles too and astro-physics and zombie movies when I gets a minute.

What would you say to anyone who is considering bringing a disabled cat into their lives and introducing them to their other cats?

I finks firstly well done fur thinking about adopting an extra special kitty and then just takes it slowly and pretty much as you would for a more able cat. Us special kitties are often very proud and finks we every bit as able as non-disabled kitties, often although physically impaired we are still proper little purrsonalities inside.

Do you have any parting words or important advice for us?

Opening your hearts and home to a special kitty makes you a truly wonderful person, you is going to get so much lubs, rewards, laughs and unconditional love from your special and unique furiend. Ok we mights be a bit of extra works sumtimes but theres many advantages too, and lubs comes in all colours, shapes and sizes. We will amaze you wiv our strength and determination to jus gets on wiv our lives.
