In war torn Afghanistan, 2011, American Sgt. Jesse Knott snuck Koshka, a stray abused cat, into his base to care for and treat him. Koshka returned the favour by saving Knott from crippling despair after two of his friends were killed by a suicide bomber on a convoy. Through Koshka’s actions, he pulled Knott out of one of his darkest times, Knott was then determined to pull Koshka out of one of his darkest places and safely transport him back to America with him, which he managed with the help of others. Since then, Koshka and Jesse have received several awards, one stating “Sometimes we save an animal, sometimes, an animal saves us”.
