So, at the end of November last year I was told my work unit was being shut by the parent company and we were all being made redundant. I was lucky enough to be involved in decommissioning and my last day is 15 June.
My husband said if I got another job earning more than £X I could have another cat as I was so miserable.
A couple of weeks ago a stray cat turned up. He was thin, hungry and had ticks and fleas. We gradually got his confidence and he started accepting food outside then inside. Once he was confident enough to come in he adopted my daughter's bed as his own. We got him to a vet and he is microchipped to an address miles and miles away. The previous owners can't be contacted so we are in the process of adopting him.
This week I got a job offer! I am sure the new cat was an omen.
Not really sure what the purpose of this post is other than a big thank you to my remote running friends who have kept me going with their inspirational and funny posts and distracted me from the depths of job hunting depression at times.
Thank you everyone!
