Doesn’t Matter If You’re A Cat/Dog Person, This Woman Needs Your Support For Her 100+ Cats Now!

Remember a few years ago, on the occasion of Cat Day, we narrated the story of internationally acclaimed Jaipur-based Historian, Archaeologist, and Writer, Rima Hooja? This woman is a mother to more than 100 stray and well-bred cats that have been harmed/abandoned by some heartless people.
Rima has turned the big halls and first two floors of her house into cat-rooms where high-rise iron branches, sky-high sitting areas, and cozy corners have been made for cats’ convenience. The spaces have enough brightness and ventilation for the babies to breathe and tolerate the changing weathers of Rajasthan.
Rima told us, “The male and female cats live together. As suggested by some veterinary doctors, I haven’t divided them according to their gender. They are not living in jail or orphanage; it’s a home after all. They are free to choose with whom and in which rooms they want to pee, eat, sleep and do head-butts!”
Today, she seeks our help. Rima wants all of us to unite and donate essentials like food, sanitary items, coupons for regular health check-ups, etc. to give these 100+ cats a better life that they deserve.
Rima, in spite of a tight budget, has never compromised with the quality of the products she uses for her cats. She remarked, “Even the bentonite clay and pebbles on which the cats pass their ablutions come from a trusted company in Bikaner.”
Find the list of all the items Rima needs on a daily/monthly basis, and see how you can be of any help to her. A donation of cash as little as Rs. 10 would make a difference, too. You can also order many of these items online on Flipkart, Amazon, or other sites and mark the order to her address.
