When Mig first crossed paths with Toup, he was a friendly neighborhood stray cat, relying on scraps from trash cans or occasional acts of kindness from people who would feed him.
Fast forward a few years, and now this dynamic duo are working wonders together, rescuing and fostering cats with incredible success!
Mig has known Toup for a whole decade and describes him as quite the conversationalist.
He would announce his presence with enthusiastic meows and screeches, especially when dinnertime rolled around.
Toup entered Mig's life during her school days when she was living with her parents.
He had a distinctive tipped ear, showing that he had been neutered and released, but lacked a human caregiver.
Recognizing his solitary existence, Mig and her family took it upon themselves to ensure he had regular meals.
Gradually, Toup's reserved nature began to thaw, and he started visiting Mig's porch for nourishment and a daily dose of friendly banter.
When Mig moved out, she couldn't bear to leave behind her chatty companion.
However, transitioning him to indoor life would require some patience and adjustment.
Over time, Toup discovered the joys of indoor living. He relished the warm and cozy beds, relished in cuddles, and indulged in delicious food.
Who could blame him for loving such comforts?
Although Toup still has the freedom to explore the outdoors, he never strays far from home.
Mig explains, "He still yearns for the outdoors, so we embark on small outdoor adventures together."
After long walks, especially during the cold season, Toup seeks solace in snuggling up with Mig, warming his precious toe beans.
However, Toup isn't a fan of snow or rain, often expressing his discontent when his paws get wet.
On the other hand, he absolutely adores basking in the sun.
Toup has also proven to be a social butterfly, eagerly engaging in conversations with guests who visit Mig's family.
But that's not all! Toup's inspiring presence motivated Mig to establish The Biscuit Factory, an independent rescue organization dedicated to providing foster homes for cats in need.
Throughout their three homes, Mig and her family have rescued 35 feline friends who have become cherished members of their family.
Their heartwarming journey has garnered a significant following, especially on TikTok, where the "Toupsday" hashtag has gained considerable popularity.
Using this platform as a means to help more cats find loving homes has been Mig's ultimate goal.
"I wanted to use this platform in the best way possible, so I decided to begin using it to help rescue more kitties,” wrote Mig.
"I truly wish that more stray kitties could experience the comfort of an indoor life like Toup.
The extra effort it takes to earn their love and trust is truly worthwhile," Mig concludes with sincerity.
In the end, it's a testament to the incredible bond formed between Mig and Toup, and the positive impact they're making in the lives of many cats in need.
