Our Take: Being an animal lover and a cat parent myself, I was absolutely delighted to read this piece of news. I am glad to see that these magnificent creatures of the wild are also receiving the attention and care that they need. Most people in urban areas are not aware of them problems that our gentle giants go through. It helps to come across articles such as these that educate us and inspire us at the same time. It is only when human beings take care of and take responsibility for the problems that they have caused these loving creatures, that the spirits of animals and human beings can co-exist peacefully.
