This essay, view rather a story, has been written in the remembrance of my pet kitten “Baggu”, who is now in heaven. She taught me what animal welfare actually is.

I had bought a pet Semi Persian kitten (Male) for my wife as a birthday present on 10th Feb 2012. We named the cat Boozou Bumpets. Boozou is a very shy cat and gets scared very easily.
