A Resident Of The UK Lydia Ellery could not wait until finally comes time for her vacation, because she had wanted to go to Greece the island of Zakynthos. Prior to that, she never was in Greece.
Lydia has it in her dreams, as she luxuriates on the beach on the white sand under the warm rays of the Mediterranean sun. All of this was drastically different from her native Great Britain, where at that time often dull the cool rain.
From Greece Lydia had planned to come well rested and with a gorgeous tan. She did not know that she would bring with rest something, or rather someone else.
When Lydia arrived at Athens, she visited the beaches, cafes, local attractions and started to notice a lot of stray cats. This upset the girl, because many of the cats were groomed, fleas and fed on scraps from garbage dumps.
Lydia regretted not being able to save everyone and decided to help at least a small number of cats. She began to bring food and feed the street cats. Other tourists and local residents. Lydia approached one of the women.
She said she took custody of the little kitten out of the garbage and feeds it, but it’s time to leave and she’s afraid that without it, the kitten will die of starvation. She asked Lydia to look after the baby and called the place. where is this trash.
When Lydia walked over to the garbage cans, nearby, to her, because of the bags of garbage ran little kitten variegated color.
"He was only a few weeks. He lived in this place near the garbage and it was very dangerous. Kitty in search of food could climb into garbage bags and pickers along with the bags could throw it in the garbage truck".
Lydia could not take the kitten in my room, but twice a day she started to come to this place.
"I gave him pieces of fish and the kitten ate so greedily, as if he had never seen such food. Soon he was up to me and begged on his knees. We became friends".
Lydia gave the kitten a nickname for Geoffrey, but then she noticed it and found out. it’s a girl and then she called her Aggi (in honor of Agatha Christie).
When the time came to leave the island back to the UK, Lydia was worried about the fate of the kitten.
"I read that a lot of cats in Greece die when winter comes, because the winter is almost no tourists and no one feeds. I could not think about what aggie will suffer the same fate".
Lydia was decided to take the kitten home with her, but it turned out that it was not so easy to make and need a lot of documents and permits. Fortunately, the girl asked for help in the local organization of street animals "Zante Strays" and they agree to find aggie foster family.
But even arriving home and realizing that, aggie, most likely, will be well, Lydia could not stop thinking about the kitten and she still managed to bring the cat to the UK. I had to do for the sake of a kitten, a veterinary passport, vaccinations necessary to work hard, and then a few days to take the kitten at sea on the ship.
And finally, aggie was home with Lydia. Since then, a year has passed and aggi turned into an adult and healthy cat tortoiseshell coloring. She lives with Lydia and her mother in the suburbs and likes to walk in the garden and chasing butterflies.
Aggie was surprised to meet her first winter, in Greece she’d never seen snow, but she quickly got used to it.
"I do not want to think about what it would be with aggi "Zante Strays". She is a beautiful and unique little girl and very happy. I met her a year ago in may"- said Lydia Ellery.
