To see them now, you might never guess they came from a war zone on the other side of the world; but six beautiful Siamese now call Texas home.

The Guardsmen began caring for the cats — Tom and Dolli — with the intention of taking them home. When they were transferred, the Guardsmen learned their new pets weren’t allowed to accompany them.

Before leaving, the Guardsmen handed Tom and Dolli over to a Pakistani carpenter who worked on the American base. The carpenter then gave the feline pair to his nephew, Asif Chaudrey, who likes cats.

A very touching story! I'm from Pakistan myself, and a cat lover! Although I currently don't own a cat, I would love to sometime soon. The most popular breeds here are Persian and Siamese, I really wish they would introduce more breeds here and have a Pakistani Cat Fanciers Association or something of that sort here too!
