If you’re looking for the best countries to retire cheap, you might want to have some furry companionship. When I left Canada, my ex girlfriend took our cats, and I’ve been a solitary wanderer ever since.

In Siem Reap, Cambodia there are a ton of stray animals. If you’re going to be in a city for a while (like I normally am), I’d recommend getting a hold of a foster society to adopt some animals while you’re in town.

I reached out on Facebook to a wonderful society called, Animals of Our World. They are strictly non profit, volunteer run group that helps take care of animals in Siem Reap FACEBOOK LINK TO THEIR PAGE

They brought 2 kitties for me, which I promptly named Goblin and Scout. We had them cleaned and vaccinated and now I have 2 new guests in my hotel room! (A lot of places will allow you to have a pet if you ask).

I donated some cat food to their organization, and paid for the first round of vaccines, but it’s strictly a voluntary donation. Frankly, I love being able to help!

Now the two little fuzz balls are crawling all over the place, and this article is taking way longer to write, because they insist in helping!

Scout, is watching vigilantly!

So, why not foster an animal while you look for the best countries to retire cheap? Do it! Do it!
