Less than two months ago these sister mom cats were living outside, covered in fleas, infected with ear mites and worms, forced into a life of endless breeding. They were starving, to the point that they weren’t producing milk and their kittens were starving. They are estimated to only be 9-10 months old themselves.
Most likely all kittens would have died. They were severely malnourished and only started to gain weight after I bottle fed ALL of them around the clock. The moms have already been in heat again. That means they’d be pregnant again, with no babies surviving, just living life creating an endless cycle of having babies that will most likely die.
Doesn’t sound like a fun life does it?
Community cats rely on us to help end the cycle. Over 80% of cats are BORN OUTSIDE. Isn’t that insane?!
If your feeding a kitty that you see in the neighborhood, make sure you also get them fixed. Save up if you have to, find a shelter or low cost spay/neuter program, get a crate if they are friendly, or a trap if they are not, and get them spayed and neutered.
These mamas are loving life now that they feel healthy. They don’t have to fend for food, they watch as their babies eat and then eat the rest. They play with toys and groom each other. They are kittens themselves.

Had an absolute blast shooting the campaign for Remington's new raser series over the last several days! Long hours but worth every minute! ☺️ Apart from a FANTASTIC team, lots of laughs and several silly moments (yes that included me nearly falling out of the turbine on several occasions! 🤦♂️) I also very much enjoyed sharing several thoughts around the topic of what it means to be a confident man in this day and age! This can be especially challenging whilst working as a fashion model & business owner, where people around you are criticising every single step you take all the time! .
One of my biggest learning curves has been to accept that I'm not perfect! This has come with a struggle trust me. Anyone who knows me knows that I'm very self-critical, always pushing myself to achieve more, am never satisfied with where I am at and on top of that am a bit of a perfectionist! 😁🙆♂️ .
The moment I switched from trying to always fulfil people's expectations, to accepting myself for who I am ESPECIALLY my weakness, I started to thrive and overal be a lot more happy in life! ☺️❤️ .
Why? Because expectations KILL! Always feeling you have to be a"man" i.e. be confident, have it together all the time and always needing to achieve. Any men out there know what I'm talking about?! 🙋♂️ .
Not only is this unrealistic, but more importantly it's not human. We all have emotions, worries, make mistakes and mess up. In fact being vulnerable is more of a desirable trait than running multi-million pound businesses! This society needs men who can be humble, admit mistakes, be vulnerable and lead with love! ♥️ .
Anyone with me on that?! Comment below and let me know what you think! 🙂 .
That all being said - keep your eyes open for the @remington.official campaign and interview! All coming soon!! ☺️🙏🔥 .
Happy Monday friends! Xx
