Two feral kitties, Kiki and Bones were born shortly after a new group of US Marines arrived in Afghanistan.
Abandoned by their mother to the harshness of Afghanistan, the Marines adopted the two kittens.

Sadly after about a week, Bones disappeared. Two weeks had passed without any sign of her and shortly after, Kiki disappeared too. Luckily Kiki returned but he was bleeding, wounded and too frightened to approach the Marines.

It seemed as if someone had attempted to skin Kiki.

Kiki thankfully has made a full recovery.
Kiki and her new friend Key Key now live with the Marine family’s here in the US.
