A Syrian refugee refused to make his perilous journey from his war torn country to the Mediterranean without his kitten.

Photos of the twosome went viral depicting the touching moment when they both landed on the island of Lesbos, Greece, with the new migrant carefully cradling his feline friend. According to Greek news outlet Protothema, the man arrived with nothing but a few possessions, and, of course, he most precious cargo of all: his cat, Zaytouna, which is Arabic for Olive.

The man and his family are expected to to take Zaytouna with them as they continue their way into Europe where they will hopefully find a new home soon.

Upon seeing the photos of the cute pair, one tweeter pointed out: “Imagine abandoning everything that you know. This has done that, but he was determined not to lose everything.”

From a crisis that has killed so many and has wrought so much grief, this story is a great reminder of not only the many animals who are affected by the tragic events in Syria, but also of the kindness and love that still exists in the world.

We wish the family, including Zaytouna, a peaceful and safe journey.
