A cat waited on the bench for someone to park. A few weeks later it was living the life it dreamed of.

London the catKuwait Animal Aid


Earlier this year, a Good Samaritan found a stray cat sitting alone on a park bench. It was one of many abandoned cats found on the streets of Kuwait. It had been wandering the neighbourhood in the hope that someone would stop and look after it.

The cat was friendly and wanted to have its head scratched. It had probably been attacked by another cat. The finders immediately called the community for help.

Alina Lazarieva from Kuwait Animal Aid answered the call and her team of volunteers sprang into action.

‘The first volunteer went to the park to look for them but couldn’t find them. He gave his phone number to the park guard and asked him to call if the cat reappeared.

On the day the cat was taken into custody, it came to the park again, hoping it was its lucky day. Volunteers then rushed to the park when they learnt that the cat had returned. After much effort, the tiger cat was finally officially released from the streets.

He was named ‘London’ and taken into a foster home. There, he was given plenty of food and plenty of soft things to snooze on. London received much-needed medical attention and lots of cuddles from volunteers and veterinary staff.

‘He is friendly to people and children,’ Alina told Love Meow.

London’s beautiful personality is everywhere. He is very easy-going, laid back and just wants to be with people. He loves to ‘help’ in the office and is always there for his humans.

‘He has since made friends with other cats and dogs. He’s a lovely little boy.

Kuwait Animal Aid works closely with many rescue organisations in the US to help these deserving animals find loving forever homes.

London was airlifted across the ocean with many other animals from overseas shelters before being taken in by our partner rescue organisation City Kitties DC.

“He has really adapted to life here, snuggling with me in the mornings, supervising me when I am working from home and loves to lie on his back by the window to watch the action outside.”

London has gone from living on the streets to being pampered like a king. He is so lucky to have a place he can call his own and a family who love him dearly.
