Lauren and her partner took rescue cat, Missie, home just four months ago and she's already proven how resiliant these amazing animals can be.
Lauren explains: "What an addition to our new life together Missie was.

While we love all our animals here at NAWT – we’re dedicating August to cats for a second time!
Our CLAWgust campaign will celebrate all things feline, still the UK’s third most popular pet after fish and dogs (with a cat population of 7.5m).
Like last year, throughout the month of August we will be sharing information and ideas based on several themes to deepen our knowledge about cats, as well as some interesting facts and tips.
Again, we will be celebrating International Cat Day on August 8 with a special focus on feline feeding!
