A stowaway kitten discovered at Birmingham Airport aboard a shipment from Egypt has found refuge with a cat rescue group in Derby.
After the six-week-old cat, named Cairo, survived the long journey in the hold of an aeroplane, officers from Solihull Council Public Protection team out her into quarantine facilities.
After 14 days of observation, they had three choices - to send her back to Egypt; having her put to sleep; or keep her in quarantine for a further three-and-a-half months, at a cost of more than £1,000.
But Lina's Cat Rescue were contacted and said they would take full responsibility for costs and welfare during and after her quarantine period, which ends in December.
Also, after hearing about what happened, Emirates Airline also offered to cover the costs of the full quarantine process.
Once that period is over, the rescue home can begin searching for a new home for the cat.

Police have released an image of somebody they want to speak to after inappropriate comments were made to two teenage girls on a train.
It happened as the pair travelled on the 12.15pm Skegness to Nottingham train on Saturday, 22 August.
