Brother And Sister Cats Travel 8000 Miles To Find A Chance At A Forever Home

#1 A litter of Oriental Shorthair kittens were rescued from a garbage can in Oman. Little did they know that they were about to live happily ever after, thanks to the combined efforts of Purrfect Pals and Al Qurum Vet Clinic.

Simon and Sammy, two rescue Oriental Shorthair kittens, traveled 8000 miles for 26 hours to get to Seattle, Washington for a chance to find their forever home.

"They were found in a trash bin when they were a few days old, and were cared for by a vet in Muscat, Oman before being transported to our shelter in Seattle, Washington," Foster_kittens told us.

"Our shelter partners with a vet in Oman. Because of Oman's warm climate, kittens are born year-round, and it isn't easy to find homes for all of them. Dr. Elke Heitz and her staff at the Al Qurum Vet Clinic in Muscat, Oman raise funds to provide airfair, customs expenses, and transport to Purrfect Pals here in Washington for some of their kittens who need homes."

They were just adopted together last week by a wonderful family. "The kitties love bossing around the two standard poodles they now live with and snuggle under the blankets with different family members at night. They even line up with the dogs at treat time."
