MEET Thor, a fearless feline who embarked on a marathon journey that took him from Ciudad Quesada to La Marina. Thor’s adventure began when he disappeared from his home and was found exhausted by the side of the road by a concerned couple in La Marina urbanisation.

After taking refuge with them, the couple called Pets In Spain animal charity for help in trying to locate his owner using their network of volunteers and contacts. Despite the comfort provided by his rescuers, Thor had other plans in mind and headed back out.

Days later, Thor was spotted again, this time by a Swedish visitor, who was staying with her grandmother. She immediately recognised Thor from a Facebook appeal from the Pets In Spain page. She contacted the charity, who were able to organise the happy reunion.

The relief of Thor’s owner, Esther, was palpable as she was finally reunited with her furry friend. Thor’s Swedish rescuer, Michele, was also present, happy to have played a role in reuniting the pair.
