$3,800 USD to Rescue a Cat in China

First off let me say I’m a cat lover. And a dog lover. But this English teacher goes one step further.

She was teaching English in China and adopted a stray cat. Then she spent £2,500 (about $3,800 USD) to take it back to the UK when she left the country. I don’t know. I just think that she could have given a few thousand dollars to one of the many cat charities/homes in China and saved not just one cat but a whole bunch of them.

Is she being selfish? Do the needs of the few outweigh the needs of the many?
