Poppie in Afghanistan - How it Started - 2007

Poppie is an unusual cat because he comes from Afghanistan.  Poppie at the compound in Kabul - Spring 2008He walked into our compound in Kabul and immediately rubbed against the legs of everyone including the guards. This meant he was not a feral cat, though he never did this again.  We think someone might have dropped him off with us, hoping that foreigners would feed him.  He was very weak and thin and I thought he might be suffering fatally from one of those diseases cats get.  My husband insisted on bringing him into our little house in the compound but in my view, he would then become “our cat” and we could not leave him behind when we left.  My husband agreed, not knowing the consequences of this action.

This so far unnamed cat just needed food and some attention and he improved.  We used the services of a young local veterinarian who had an office nearby. He made a house call since we didn’t have a carrier and brought medicine for worms and gave the cat several shots.  We noticed that the cat walked oddly and the vet thought he had been hit by a car and needed ground up calcium tablets to speed up his recovery.
