Yayo

Talking about Yayo inevitably brings tears to your eyes. His name (Catalan for Granddad) says everything, but he wasn’t actually really such an old cat……Yayo was very special…his character, his face, his voice…..just great in every sense. He was calm and patient, and when you stroked him he would meow in a really funny way that made us smile. Yayo spent a long time in the Jardinet until finally we found him a foster home. Imagine living in the breakwater on the beach where its cold even in summer, enduring bad weather and searing heat, eating what you can, surviving in all kinds of situations…..he went from all this pain to a nice, warm blanket, the soft caresses of kind hands, and love…..reflected in tender looks and warm arms……

Yayo left us shortly after he went to his foster home. We think that he finally felt safe, secure and loved…..he went when he thought it was his time, with the satisfaction that comes with contentment, with the confidence that it was his home, and finally with his heart full of love
