This bearded-beauty was discovered in Igneada Floodplain Forests with a broken paw and in a bad state. A fellow animal lover contacted us for help, as there are no vets or any kind of facilities in the area.

The person who found her named her “Bal”, which means honey in Turkish, as a reference to her beautiful eyes.

We immediately brought her to Istanbul and started her treatments at the clinic. Her paw was indeed broken, she required some time to heal. During this time we started her training and socialising. She was truly a joy to be around. Once she was fully recovered (and spayed), we started our search for her loving forever home.

She is now named Leica and has an amazing family, including he cat sister Cate!
