An American soldier stationed in Afghanistan rescued a special kitten during her final deployment. Christine Bouldin, an animal lover, heard about a mama cat and her kitten that were spotted on the base. The kitten had health issues, and Bouldin named her Felix. She researched Felix’s condition, Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH), and discovered that it was not curable but did not worsen. Bouldin became worried when Felix’s mother disappeared and found a friend to build a cat house for her. Bouldin searched for a way to bring Felix back to the United States and found an animal rescuer in Kabul who agreed to help. Bouldin paid $300 for a driver to take Felix to Kabul. After six months, Felix was ready to be brought back to the U.S., and Bouldin drove to Virginia to pick her up. Felix now lives in Colorado with Bouldin and another rescue cat named Gus. Despite her CH, Felix brings joy to her family every day.
