FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) - Two Southwest Florida cats were recently adopted and are spending Christmas with a loving family. Happens every day, right?


The News-Press ( reports that the two black kittens were adopted by people in Denmark - 4,753 miles from Fort Myers.

Per and Emely Larsen of Denmark had lived in Las Vegas previously and had adopted a black cat there. That kitty died of cancer. The Larsens emailed the Cat Fanciers Association in their country, searching for a black domestic short hair cat. Denmark didn't have any, so the Larsens contacted the CFA in the U.S. Eventually they were able to Skype with Lee County Animal Services to see two black kittens.

Mau and Lua - those are the kitties' names - are settling in after a long flight.
