Hello there, my name is Alanzo and it’s a pleasure to meet you! I hope you have a spare couple of minutes as I'd really like to share my story with you. I promise it’s a good one, albeit a little sad. But don’t you worry, I already feel much better just knowing that you decided to click on my profile today. And anyway, don’t all the best stories in life have a challenging chapter?
Where to start, well I suppose from the beginning is a good a place as any! Back in July 2021, I was found on the streets suffering from some horrible injuries. The saddest thing of all is that the injuries were most likely deliberately caused by humans.
I know, I know. Why would someone possibly want to hurt a sweet old cat like me? Sadly, I don’t know either. I would never want to hurt anyone myself, so it was hard to believe that someone would want to do something so cruel.
Due to the wound on my back, the veterinary team think that someone poured hot water over me, and also purposely cut off part of my leg. You might be wondering at this point why I don’t remember this myself. Well, you see I found it easier to remove it all from my mind as it was just too painful to hold on to.
Considering my wounds, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that I am quite a shy character, and learning to trust people here at first was very difficult for me, but I am getting better at it! I have even made a couple of friends who are great, but I would really like to make a few more, and that’s where you come in! Would you like to be my friend? I might not be the most confident or affectionate of cats, but I promise I have a big heart, and I'd really like to share it with you.
You see, it’s quite likely that I will spend the rest of my life here at Soi Dog. I’m already eight years old, and because of my shyness I prefer to spend my days in the kitten room where I'm very lucky to have the company of Dr. Su and the nurses. They give me lots of treats, and I even have my own sofa to relax on! Although I'm a lot older than the kittens, I prefer being there to being with the older cats as I get to have more quiet and alone time. The kittens can be a little mischievous at times, but they tend to know not to disturb be on the sofa. I suppose I consider it to be my home – something I didn't know if I would ever have.
Your sponsorship will ensure that I continue to have a great life here at Soi Dog and receive everything I need. From my food, to any medication and even toys – it really does make such a difference! In return, I will be sure to keep you updated on how I'm getting on.
I really hope this can be the start of a beautiful friendship!
