During a recent deployment in the Middle East, Army Sergeant Ash received difficult family news. She credits a stray kitten for comforting her through this emotionally wrenching period. The little calico was near death when Sgt. Ash rescued her. She nursed Rona, as she named the kitten, back to health. Sgt. Ash will soon return to the US, and is desperate to bring Rona with her. Guardians of Rescue are working to navigate Rona through the complicated and costly process of international pet travel. They have created a fundraiser for the pair. For more about Sgt. Ash and little Rona, visit People.com.
