Christine Bouldin met a tiny kitten named Felix while on her final deployment in Afghanistan. Bouldin served for eight years in the U.S. Army, and the moment she met Felix, she was smitten. Felix couldn’t walk without flopping to one side.
It was later determined that Felix had Cerebellar Hypoplasia (CH) a disease that affects motor skills, so, other than being a little wobbly when she walks, Felix is a healthy girl. At first, Felix would hiss at Bouldin, but over time she learned to love her new human friend
Bouldin fed Felix and her momma every day, and soon the cats were thriving. Bouldin started to wonder how she was going to get them both home.
Suddenly, the mother cat disappeared and left Felix behind. Bouldin built her a home out of sandbags. While home in North Carolina Bouldin’s boys sent Felix treats.
Bouldin found a woman named Pam Constable who was willing to foster Felix in Kabul until they could get her sent to the U.S. Spending time with Felix every day soon became the highlight of her day.
Felix finally made the incredibly long journey to North Carolina! She even has a new furry friend to snuggle with. Felix can bounce, jump, and play like any other cat and she even knows how to use a litterbox!
Bouldin says Felix to raise her spirits!
