Boots is a very welcoming cat at PrimRose Donkey Sanctuary. When I started volunteering five years ago Boots was a good friend of Justin Incredible the dog who was the greeter at the sanctuary then. Justin was always glad to see me if it was a visiting day: Thursday or Sunday, but any other day of the week he became a watch dog. When Justin passed away Boots stepped in to take over greeter duties, coming to meet visitors at the gate on visiting days. Boots, and a few other cats, seemed to recognize the sound of my car when I pulled in rushing over, purring loudly and hoping for treats. Boot’s purr was loud and gravelly. Boot’s ears had a few nicks out of them from skirmishes but generally got along with the other cats. Boots loved ear scratches and cuddles.The last time I saw Boots his health was not good. He was off his feed and would only sit with me for a minute before wandering off. Boots went peacefully to kitty heaven a couple of weeks ago. Rest In Peace Boots.
