Kolkata, India - In Asia's biggest shelter for rescued cats, the feline
inmates are turning vegetarian these days, thanks to animal lovers who
import alternative Italian food for the furry laptops.
These days the cats in Karunakunj, a centre for rescued animals near
here run by the Compassionate Crusaders Trust (CCT), are getting
addicted to an Italian food which is completely vegetarian.
'To avoid serving non-veg food to cats some of our animal-loving
patrons thought that we should try to find out an alternative
vegetarian food which can provide cats required nourishment and at the
same time save innocent lives of other animals,' said Debasis
Chakraborti, founder of CCT, a strategic partner of Maneka Gandhi's
People for Animals (PFA).
'After a lot of search the animal lovers found a company in Italy -
AMI Srl - which can supply 100 percent vegetarian food without any
ingredients of animals or insects but having all non-veg food
qualities,' said Chakraborti as he laid out the veggie spread before
the residents of the cattery.
