Mews and Nips: Saving Sergeant Whiskers: Soldier Needs Help Bringing Stray Cat Home

Seargent-Whiskers-Guardians-of-Rescue

Sergeant Kelsey is a U.S. soldier on active duty in the Middle East. Six weeks into her tour, a young cat visited the office tent – she was visibly malnourished, wounded, and so weak she could only walk a few steps at a time. Sgt. Kelsey began caring for the little cat and named her Sergeant Whiskers. The little cat became source of comfort and an escape from the pressures of the job. One night, Whiskers led Sgt. Kelsey to two tiny kittens. Kelsey will be returning to the States soon and is desperate to take her new feline family with her. Guardians of Rescue are working to navigate the trio through the complicated and costly process of making that happen. For more about Sgt. Whiskers and her kittens and more adorable photos, visit the Guardians of Rescue Facebook page. To help Guardians of Rescue accomplish their mission, you can donate here.
