Beautifully illustrated in pencil with poignant & evocative stanzas ~ For children aged 7 years + and adults ~ This is the true tale of Haggis ~ a blind street kitten from Romania, the sole survivor of his family, who was rescued by a volunteer and then found a home in Scotland where he lives as part of a large very spoilt family of adopted animals including four other blind cats (they have a large outdoor playpen as they are all very adventurous and don't know they are blind) ~ From Romania with love. A gentle introduction into the brutal world of street animals with a happy ending.

There are hundreds of millions of street cats and dogs world wide who suffer unimaginably and die from starvation, illness, injury, or as a result of deliberate human cruelty and inhumane government culls.

Ruff Beginnings is a facebook group which aims to lessen the suffering of abandoned, abused and injured street animals in Eastern Europe by funding transport, veterinary care, safe boarding, neuter and spay, winter feeding and the building of independent rescue shelters through a network of dedicated volunteers who risk everything to make the lives of animals healthier and happier in their countries.
