Toby is a six-year-old cat with feline skin asthenia, a condition in which the skin is very fragile and stretched due to a lack of collagen, also known as Ehlers-Danlos syndrome in humans.
When Georgina Price met Toby, she knew he was perfect. Not only did she take him home, but she also took him to her best friend.
“It means that your body does not produce collagen properly. It does not heal as well as it should and it heals very easily.”
When Georgina and her boyfriend, Christopher Lardner, met Toby, he was hiding in a corner of the shelter behind his best friend, Quinton.
“I saw them on the RSPCA website and fell in love instantly. When we met them, they were both terrified and huddled right in the back. Toby hid behind Quinton the whole time, shaking. I couldn’t even touch him because he was so scared.” Georgina said.
