10-year-old George the ginger cat lived with his human mom Fiona in Sydney, Australia. He was happy and loved until when Fiona became ill and had to return to Ireland, his life was suddenly changed.

Fiona reached out to her neighbors to help her look after George, thinking she should return soon. However, her stay became much longer than she expected due to her poor health.

It was clear to Fiona that she had to move George over to Ireland. As she began to plan, her neighbors moved away and George was left behind.

In order to survive on his own, George began to wander around the neighborhood looking for scraps to eat, but eventually he got lost and couldn't find his way back to his old house.

Some good Samaritans spotted the senior cat and brought him to a local vet clinic and tracked down his owner through a microchip. The tiny cage at the vet's became his new temporary home.

Fiona was devastated by what happened to her beloved cat and desperately wanted to bring him home to Ireland. She couldn't afford the travel expenses, and didn't know what to do.

With help from Fiona's friends and many kind people from Sydney and around the world, they collected enough funds to arrange a trip for George to fly to Ireland.
