As animal lovers, it can be near impossible to resist going out of our way to help an animal in need. Whether that means rescuing a lost dog and doing whatever it take to find their home, or alerting wildlife rehabilitators to a baby squirrel that has lost its mother, there is no task to great or small when it comes to lending a hand. Sometimes, this even means helping animals while out on vacation – just take a look at this story from Imgur user spicyadhesive who did something incredible for a stray cat she met while on vacation in Cyprus.

On the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, which was already home to a large number of stray animals, the number of abandoned dogs and cats has nearly doubled since the recent financial crisis. Although it is still a nice place to vacation, this woman was absolutely unable to turn a blind eye to the plight of these suffering strays.

She spotted a skinny orange cat hiding among the dumpsters, her heart went out to him.

She writes, “George was a skinny, frightened street cat from Cyprus. He lived alone and afraid amongst the rubbish.”

“When I saw him, I loved him instantly.”

“I spent my holiday feeding and cuddling this beautiful cat, who repaid me with unconditional affection and an unbreakable bond.”

Today, George enjoys the sweet life, living with his new family in the UK.

As they say, saving one animal might not change the world – but for that animal, certainly their entire world has changed.
