Venus in Kirkuk, Iraq - May '09Venus in Idaho, October '09

Venus' mother was rescued by U.S. soldiers outside Kirkuk, Iraq in early March, 2009. Shortly thereafter on March 13, "Whiskers" gave birth to 5 kittens including Venus, shown above. Long story short, Venus, her mother, and siblings were flown back to the United States in May, 2009 where they have all been adopted. Venus now lives in Eagle, Idaho with a loving couple and "Plum" (see photo below) their older Siamese. The left photo above was taken in Kirkuk prior to her departure to Baghdad and the United States. The right photo was taken in October, 2009 in Eagle, ID. Click on her pictures for more information about "Operation Baghdad Pups" that sends dogs & cats rescued by U.S. soldiers in "The Sandbox" back to the United States. "Nowzad Dogs" also was deeply involved in the transport alongside "Operation Baghdad Pups" in getting these kitties out of Iraq.
