A couple from the Philippines was renting a condo in a suburb of Manila when the real estate market crashed.
They wanted to make their vacation home their own, but found themselves in a predicament.
“It was a very difficult decision to make, because I didn’t know how to get rid of the cats and also I didn´t know how much to pay,” said Mariana.
The couple decided to put the cats in a condo to save money, but it was not easy.
“I had to take them out in a trailer and put them in a tiny room.
They were in a box, they were in crates, they had no food,” said the cat-loving couple, who were working in the Philippines at the time.
They decided to move to a different part of the city to get away from their cat-sick home, and decided to take the cats out of the condo to take a vacation.
Now, the couple have adopted their cat from a shelter in the city of Marawi.
