About The Cat Calendar 2019

Put together by an ardent cat lover, Simona Terron – aka @CatCrazyChica. An independent media professional, she “simply put together a bunch of my photos” of all my kitties, past and present. Since each of these featured animals is a rescue, Simona thought it appropriate to use their pictures for the calendar.

No great cause lacks support. “With the help of my rakhi-brother, Yogesh Panagale, I connected with Chetan Dhopate and Vijay of Savvy Arts, who printed the calendar and patiently dealt with my inexperience”, relates Simona.

Founder of Samovila Foundation, Nidhi Ganguly, also has some very nice things to say about this #CatCrazyChica Calendar 2019 . “We are so thankful to Simona for coming up with this idea. For their support towards the shelter, the donor too gets a sweet memento in return. This is not just another casual calendar. It’s filled with love and licks of waggy tails and purrs and head bonks of many meows to ensure that each day of 2019 is filled with happiness and peace!” Now that’s a lot of positive warmth coming your way!

What is Samovila Foundation?

This animal shelter is run by incredible individuals, serving abused, abandoned, disabled and senior animals who are residents here. Samovila Foundation is now looking to raise funds for a new place to relocate their animal shelter to. “As a Home for Handicapped and Senior Animals, we have always limited the number of animals with us due to space constraints. We also to try and avoid human-animal conflict as we are located very close to human settlements. This new place that we are leasing out is very huge”, says Nidhi.

More space ensures admission of more animals, ensures more space for the resident furries, better allocation of space and can help Samovila Foundation plan activities to sustain its causes. Needs of the hour include levelling of land; a container cabin for cats; proper strong enclosures; a deep freezer to keep chicken and fish that’s bought in bulk and a medical room to treat local animals brought in.
