Englishmen Kyle Walker and John Stones fly a stray Qatar cat to Britain to find a new life

A stray Qatari Moggy flown home to be adopted by kindhearted English stars had to wait four months to be reunited with them last night – and the snippet.

Secret softies Kyle Walker and John Stones took the tabby to their hearts during their four-week stay and promised to bring him home if England win the World Cup.

But his footballs won’t be making it home – as he is due to be neutered today before being vaccinated and prepared for his new life in the UK.

Manchester City defenders Kyle and John stuck to their vow despite being eliminated by France in the quarter-finals and he will now be flown to Britain in the New Year.

And they must now decide which of them will take permanent care of the lovable tabby.

Dave was taken care of last night by the Qatar Animal Welfare Society, which received around £2,000 from players for microchipping and vaccinations against viruses including rabies.

He will be tested in three months to get the all clear and then be escorted on a plane to the UK.

Charity leader Janet Berry has been caring for animals in Qatar for 18 years after moving from Woking, Surrey and will look after Dave until he makes the 4,000 mile journey.

Janet, 58, said last night: “Dave is a really nice chatty tabby and it’s easy to see why players have fallen in love with him.

“But I’m afraid he has to flick tomorrow as it is the most responsible measure to reduce the stray population and keep them healthy.

“He is a beautiful cat and will stay with me before he is flown to the players because we don’t want him to disappear from the hotel.

“The FA approached me to help them after the players said they wanted him to be looked after properly and taken home.”

The player’s promise to bring Dave home conflicted with the hotel’s claims that Dave stayed put yesterday – and sparked a tabby tug-of-war conundrum.

Emad Nabulsi, Manager of Souq Al Wakra Hotel, yesterday produced pictures and videos of Dave playing on the hotel grounds.

And he insisted the cat was happy and being cared for by his staff.
Mr. Nabulsi – who sent a snap of Dave being petted by a hotel worker.

Lorna Rejuso said last night: “The England players have said goodbye to Dave and he is staying at the hotel.

“Kyle Walker said he wanted to adopt him but I’m not aware of any plans for him to go to England – he’s being well looked after by our staff here.”

Mr Nabulsi sent pictures and videos showing plump Dave relaxing by the hotel’s new pool – which was specially built for the players for the ill-fated four-week stay at the swanky hostel.

And he showed off a special care pack sent by Qatar Animal Welfare Group with the card: “We would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how we can help Dave with his future.”

Mr Nabulsi added: “Dave has been given a supply of kibble by the charity to keep him fit and well fed.

“There are many stray cats in the souk but Dave is now one of the fattest and healthiest after being fed at English dining tables for so long.

“I’m sure he misses the team because they’ve been so nice to him, but he’s very happy here.”
