The luckiest cat in the World: A Sick and abandoned black cat became the world luckiest cat who traveled miles from Madina to Canada. How this all happened? The story is quite interesting and amazing too.
A married couple of Poland, Ozkan, and Beata found the poor cat on the day they arrived Madina after Hajj. They found this very young black Shirazi kitten along with two larger one and their mother cat outside the Crown Plaza Hotel.
The cat was abandoned by her mother: The wife Beata felt sorry when she saw the poor little cat was abandoned by her mother and rejected by her siblings. She took her in her arms and sent her husband to buy some milk for the poor little kitten.
Beata and Ozkan were leaving Madina the next day so they asked for the help of Don. The kitten was handed to a Canadian couple Don and his wife Amany. Amany held some syringes from the hotel in order to feed milk to the starving kitten to save her life.
They fell in love with the Kitten: Amany said, “We fell in love with the kitten, the first time we saw her. We thought to take it to Canada with us but people told us that she was a Madina cat and should stay in Madina.
Amany and her husband struggled to find her a better home before they could leave Saudi Arabia because she believed that Allah has put her in their arms so that they can take care of her. During all the struggle they met Abdul-Aziz Masnad Alghnamy who helped the couple to take the kitten with them to Canada.
She was okay to fly to Canada: Abdul-Aziz was the owner of three cats and quite knowledgeable. He first suggested taking the kitten to the vet, Dr. Ahmad Fathy Abdalal in the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture. He determined the Kitten’s health and said that she was to survive the trip to Canada.
Kitten got the Passport: The doctor prescribed medicine for her and done the necessary paperwork to obtain a passport for the kitten. The integral part of the paperwork was to name the Kitten, hence the couple named her as Zamzam because Zamzam is one of the miracles of Allah and this cat is also a miracle of Allah who placed her in their path.
After finishing all her paperwork, the couple contacted the Saudi airlines and airport to fulfill all the requirements that are needed to take a pet in the airline. Recommended: Procedure to Take Pets out of Saudi Arabia
At the airport, two men named Mohamed Abas Mahroqe and Khalid Khan prepared the paperwork to transport Zamzam to board four different airplanes. Everyone, there was thinking that this is impossible but with Allah’s help everything became possible and the trip started from Madina to Winnipeg.
The last hurdles they faced was at their final trip from Minneapolis in the US to Winnipeg in Canada where the Delta airlines policy was that the animal less than 10 weeks old cannot be transported to the cabinet of their plane and Zamzam was just five weeks old but when the agent heard the story he sympathetically gave permission to take Zamzam with them in the plane
ZamZam is enjoying her good health: Amany thanked Allah as it all could not be possible without Allah’s help. Zamzam is enjoying her good health and will be a constant reminder of their stay in Madina.
The couple thanked the Ministry of Hajj for making the Hajj trip easy for them. They wish to come back soon to perform Hajj or Umrah.
