Exciting news! We are just over a week away from the arrival of our next small group of rescued boys and girls from Russia! One of them – a kitten called Frosya – has a very special story to tell.
He was hit by a car when he was only over 2 months old. There was little hope for his survival at first but, amazingly, he pulled through.
He had to loose his tail but it’s a small price to pay in comparison. Frosya comes from Grozniy – the capital of the Chechen Republic in Russia. He was rescued and looked after by a volunteer of a local shelter “The Hope for life”.
We do not work in that region but one day we were contacted by a lovely Belgian couple who had seen Frosya’s story on the shelter’s Instagram and wanted to adopt him! What are the chances of that!
They asked us for advice on how to go about bringing him to Belgium. They were determined to help Frosya and the shelter was very responsible in looking after him, but neither had any experience in arranging international transportation of animals.
So they needed a little help and we were more than happy to get involved.
This morning Frosya started his journey from Grozniy to Moscow – that’s nearly 2,000 km by car. He will then rest in a foster home in Moscow for a few days and will join our “gang” on their journey to the UK for a better life.
Frosya will “hop off” in Europe, having covered another 2,500 km, but by plane this time. There he will meet his new family who are keenly awaiting his arrival.
