Lia is travelling with Animalcouriers from Greece to the UK. Lia had the good fortune to be rescued by Jo, who went the extra mile to help her get well and is now eagerly awaiting her arrival. Jo tells us the story of how she found and adopted Lia:

“We were having dinner near Lia beach, and I saw a young cat feeding three kittens, all different ages. Just one was hers. The other two were very young and obviously sick and orphaned. So I took the one in worst shape to the vet, who said she had a respiratory virus which had caused her to have a bacterial infection in her eyes. Sadly, her eyes were damaged beyond repair and the vet didn’t think she would make it. So she had to be put down.

I rushed out to get the other one, and the vet said he thought with IV antibiotics and drops applied every four hours we might be able to save one of her eyes. So I changed my flight so I could take care of her and we did manage to save the eye! It’s taken a while for Lia to come out of her shell but by the time I left her she was happily playing and purring away. I can’t wait to see her again!”
