Olga was abroad for the first time in 2012 when she took the little Polina. Six months earlier, Polya and her mother Sveta had come to Austria on a winter vacation to Austria. Suddenly Sveta got a fever and was shockedly diagnosed in the hospital – acute leukemia.
Olga helped her girlfriend as well as possible, she collected money in Russia for treatment. A month before her death, Sveta was placed in a hospice.
Sveta called me and said, "That's all. I can't take it anymore." I realized I had to fly urgently to pick up Pauline.
Sveta died on September 11.
The same evening Olga and Polina flew to Russia to avoid problems with Austrian guardianship, with Russian guardianship there were also enough. At the time of custody, Olya had two children of her own, a small apartment, an official maternity nurse salary from the Central City Hospital in Berezovsky, and a completed divorce with her ex-husband. However, that was only on paper. In fact, home is not measured by square meters, but by the amount of love. The love and care of all family members was enough for Polina to grow up as a beautiful smiling girl, who brilliantly completed her school and enrolled in a medical university. Now she is an indispensable assistant at Olga & # 39; s shelter for stray cats "Angel with Moustaches
Olga received shelter for stray cats" Angel with Mustaches "four years ago. In the beginning she only helped with but gradually she took care of the cats that fell completely on her shoulders.Every morning, Olga's route passes through an old wooden house, with the only plastic window in which the lights never go out.With light, cats are much easier every night
The second time Olga comes for daily cleaning, Yura helps with the treatment and reception of new departments Well-off animals do not come here, all have a difficult fate, and some have serious fate, incurable diseases.
The cat Bucks was found with his paws removed, the X-ray showed a bullet in his back, Bucks would never walk because of disability and blast ash problems, he must be washed every day to prevent bedsores.
Kamysh is also washed daily because he also has problems with the gastrointestinal tract and he needs extra daily hygiene.
Baba Valya is sleeping in her favorite bed. Olga took her from a woman with a mental disorder. & # 39; Baba Valya lived 6 years with her legs tied to the floor in the toilet. However, she started to walk hard at the shelter. She still sleeps in the usual posture of many years of being tied up, "says Olga.
Old Kira barely walks. She lived with the owners for 15 years, but they decided to move and leave Kira behind in the stairs. "Kira lives comfortably. She has the usual health problems for an older animal. Right now there are problems with the gastrointestinal tract, we treat, we inject, but most of the time she's just an old cat who loves and needs affection. "
Finding new owners for such animals is almost impossible. Olya speaks about them in a good mood. Otherwise one can go mad with pity. Every look of her cats is filled with gratitude for the opportunity to live, receive a portion of care and affection, sleep in warmth and eat specially selected food.
There are many healthier or recovered cats in the shelter, they like to run to meet each other, rub their feet, purr and have fun games while Olya and Yura are playing to be clean. Olga is always in a hurry. After cleaning she will do therapeutic massage, this is her main income, the salary of the nurse is not enough. Nevertheless, even in the rush and rush, she does not forget to tell each pet a good word and caress.
Dogs sometimes come to the cat shelter and quickly find a common language with cats. A puppy was brought to the shelter at the time of filming; unknown people cut off her ears and threw her into the street.
Financing, finding new homes and treating the residents of the & # 39; Engel & # 39; with mustaches & # 39; is usually on Olya's shoulders, and there are plenty of common everyday issues. Older children have grown up, have their own families. & # 39; In the evenings at home, however, she is always met by Polin, a beloved man, two dogs and five cats. In an incomprehensible way, Olya manages to warm everyone up.
