From that day on every time I had a meal I would grab an extra plate for
her. Eventually she became my team's pet and everyone fed her all kind of
snacks. During that month and half that we spent there she gained a few pounds.
after I met her and knew that she would be a great companion due to her
friendliness, playfulness, and gentleness, I started working on the
arrangements required for her rescue. We were the last team scheduled to
operate in that fob so after our departure she was going to be on her own
without any means of sustenance."
