Default monkey + bethany say hello!

Hi there! My husband and I are western expats who live in Kuwait...where we adopted our fuzzy friend, Monkey.

We adopted Monkey when she was 3 weeks old...a kind Samaritan found under a pile of rubble in Kuwait City. After a bit of searching + waiting, Monkey's mother never turned the Samaritan scooped her up and took on the mission of finding her a forever family.

When she came to us, she weighed less than half a pound...and almost immediately became very sick due to something she picked up on the street. Thankfully, we had access to a wonderful vet who prescribed saline injections + medication. I don't work while living I spent the first week with a teeny shivering kitten on my chest for 18 hours a day.

Needless to say, during that time I fell head over heels for this tiny, helpless furball.

Now Monkey is 6 months old, very healthy and CRAZY energetic! Because we had such a rocky start, we try to let her know she is SO loved...even if she started her life as an orphaned kitty on the Street of Hard Knocks!

And so in short, I suppose I am ready to say...Hello. My name is Bethany, and I am a Crazy Cat Lady.

Photos of our little Monkey are attached!

She's beautiful! You're awesome for taking her in and taking care of her needs, including medical.

Everyone here is very nice and helpful so you'll learn a lot amongst fellow kitty lovers.

Hi Bethany and little Monkey! How long have you been in Kuwait?? You mentioned in a previous post that you are moving - are you coming back to the US?

Hi Bethany! Your story reminds me of the Jeddah story. It was an American man who found a street kitten in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and managed to rescue her, get her vet care, and bring her home to Virginia. She even has her own Facebook page. Hey, how about a Monkey Facebook page....?

She's absolutely adorable.

Thank you SO much for the warm welcome, everyone! We've already gotten a few of our questions answered in the forum...such a helpful bunch!

October, I hadn't heard this story! Now I'm going to have to look it up, and probably cry my eyes out due to it's sweetness. Perhaps Monkey will need her own Facebook page! She's quite the little diva, so I can imagine she'd enjoy that.

Marcia, we've been in Kuwait for about 8 months now. By month two I was losing my mind with homesickness and boredom...and then tada! Monkey came along. She helps so much. We're leaving Kuwait within the next few months...likely by summer....the entire trip home is a 32 hour ordeal, so we feel a little nervous about that! Thankfully, she'll be allowed in the cabin with us...and ever the diva...she'll have her own seat!
