The Perfect Imperfections
Unsurprisingly, we have more than just one hero who is not put under the spotlight. Meet Ms. Azie Darwish and our cover cat for issue 03, Syahid, a three-legged cat.
This article is titled as the Part II of “Hero of the Zeroes” because it is also closely related to Abang Kucing, who was featured in our previous issue. Syahid was initially rescued by Abang Kucing, and was then taken care by Ms. Azie. The exact reason to Syahid’s injury was unknown, but it is suspected to be caused by a vehicle.
Heart of Gold
Ms. Azie is a pet rescuer with a heart of gold – she does not give the cold shoulder even if the pet is disabled. In fact, she thinks that they are perfect in their own ways.
Ms. Azie started rescuing cats when she encountered an incident years ago. One day, she witnessed a cat being ill-treated by a few children. The cat’s tail was severed, and the children buried the cat’s body into the ground, with its head popping up. Unable to bear with the cruelty she was seeing, Ms. Azie stepped forward and stopped the children, and rescued the cat. Since then, she has never looked back and continued rescuing animals to this day.
Currently, there are about 30 rescued cats under Ms. Azie’s care. She will neuter the cats before putting them for adoption. To make sure that the cat does not end up on the street again, Ms. Azie would request for the adopter to
microchip the cat and apply for a pet passport for the adopted pet.
