In March 2015 we received an email from a friend of Nowzad in Kuwait.
An American soldier had contacted her about a cat he had befriended on base and he was desperate to bring the cat home with him to the USA.
Stanley was one of a litter of seven kittens who were born on the base and he became a great source of comfort to the soldier who became his protector.
After feeding him bits of chicken, the bond between Stanley and his soldier became unbreakable and his soldier knew he simply couldn’t leave Stanley behind.
Thankfully, we managed to get Stanley promptly moved to safety and vaccinated.
Following some fabulous fundraising from the Nowzad family, Stanley was soon on his way to his forever home with the soldier and his family in America.
