KARACHI: A few years ago, it was literally raining cats for Maheen Zia, the co-founder of the Pakistan Animal Welfare Society (Paws). Zia, a documentary filmmaker by profession, was in a market when she heard a cat crying. She glanced up, and to her amazement, she saw a kitten hanging. She opened her arms and the tiny feline fell straight into her life. That is how Zia met Coco and decided to start an initiative to save stray cats, along with Mahera Omar. The two women had grown up seeing stray dogs being shot so they decided to change this trend.
On Thursday, Paws held a day-long pet adoption day, for which they advertised on Twitter, Facebook and their website. Even though the turnout was low, Zia hoped people will get in touch with them to rescue the stray cats. Continue reading

I was excited as well as apprehensive to greet the two kites which were delivered to me this Thursday evening. Packed up in the crammed delivery cage, they appeared to be much smaller in size than I had imagined them to be. Obviously their tails had either not developed or were cropped to accomodate the convenience of handling them and caging them. Continue reading
Folks in Karachi, we really need your help. The family who adopted this abandoned male brown and white cat cannot keep him any longer because of a tiny toddler in their house. We need to pick up this cat from them as soon as possible, but don’t have the space to house him. We want an animal lover to help by either providing a foster home or a permanent home. The cat is vaccinated, healthy and very friendly. Continue reading
