When George’s owner decided to leave Australia for a short period of time to handle some health issues, she left her lovely cat with her neighbor thinking she’d be back soon. Fiona, George’s owner, had been in Australia with her cat since he was a kitten more than 10-years ago. She’s not well at the moment, and being home in Ireland was a personal choice she had to make for herself. Unfortunately, her health did not improve, and she was forced to stay in Ireland. Fiona was in the middle of looking for a way to get her cat from Australia to Ireland so that they could be reunited, and she was heartbroken to realize that her neighbor moved and abandoned the cat without even telling her.
He was lost, so he wandered away. He ended up miles away where a local vet found the cat and scanned him for a chip. He has one, so the vet was able to contact Fiona, who shared her sad tale. Unfortunately, the cost of bringing George to Ireland is a lot of money, and Fiona simply did not have that kind of money lying around. She was heartbroken, her cat was miserable in a small cage at the vet, and her friends finally decided to do something to help their beloved Fiona and George. They decided to create a GoFundMe Account to raise the money for the cat, and they were able to raise twice as much as they need. Now the cat is back in Ireland with his owner, and everyone is happy again. It’s a darling story that we are happy to be able to share. Everyone should have friends so sweet.
