Skelton UK resident Angela Burrell spent £2,500 to bring the cat she rescued from the streets in China back to the UK. After getting blood tests, shots, permissions and a British Airways flight, Kandinsky is enjoying life in his new home.

I love black and white kitties. It's good to hear that the UK no longer imposes the six month quarantine.

A very handsome cat, glad she rescued him & brought him home. A life is more important then money, Money is only as valuable as to the good you can do with it! Thanks Katka for sharing a real love story!

Now that's Amore! Very sweet woman. I too think he's worth every penny+what a handsome boy he is! If I ever go to China+that's not happening but if I ever did...well i'd need a cargo plane to bring back all the furballs I find...doesn't hurt to dream a little! Thx Katka

What a beautiful cat and a fortunate one too! Named after Wassily Kandinsky the great abstract Russian painter! Now, that's a name that would fit any cat because cats are just such aesthetic and beautiful creatures!

A very lucky cat, and one less meal for the Chinese! He certainly is a beauty, and she said very affectionate, I'd do the same thing if I were in that situation, how could you leave him behind? I like everything Henriette said, especially a life is worth more than money. A wonderful story Katka, thank you!
