“We are all God's creatures. And I therefore believe that we should all have the right to be loved, respected and treated with dignity. In years like these when we only think about hedonism, we need humanity so much, for a better world.
This is how Mrs. Lina Venturi replies to those who have it judged. But what was she judged for?
It is easy to say: when he leaves this world he will donate € 500,000 to cats.
But these are not his cats but will be donated for the care, maintenance and expansion of the San Lazzaro cattery in Bologna, where many cats reside.
Ms. Lina Venturi, 78 years old and in good health, grew up in respect and in love some animals.
Back in 1945, when she was a child, her mother, who worked for the Ministry of Defense at the military restaurant in Bologna, distributed leftover food to those who had nothing and also to stray animals. After the war, in fact, the care and well-being of animals had definitely taken a back seat, so that many animals wandering along the street were seen.
So, Ms. Lina grew up in this climate where there was the respect for people, but also animals were very important and therefore had to be treated with the same respect in which humans are treated.
It must also be said that Ms. Lina has always been particularly active in the field of volunteering. When he was six, he helped the parish priest of the city distribute bread and rice for the poorest. He then worked in the cooperative movement. Finally, she is still a volunteer of the "Aid" project that deals with bringing the shopping home to elderly or disabled people.
Then, animated by her love for animals, she realized two of her dreams. First of all he founded an association called " the company of animals ", Which together with the cattery of San Lazzaro, takes care of hosting cats during the pre and post-operative hospitalization, abandoned kittens and cats given up by their owners.
Secondly, it has already donated € 30,000 to the municipal administration for the construction of a cemetery for animals.
Many have judged her for her bizarre way of "giving" money, but the lady replied that her choices are well aware and profound. First of all she has been a widow for 32 years and has no children, her sister died a widow and no children, and therefore donating all the accumulated assets is an act to guarantee respect for animals and to encourage the Municipality to implement policies in favor of animals.
Many other people have left theirs assets to your cat.
We can give several examples. The designer Karl Lagerfeld left a good part of his heritage to his cat Choupette.
Then the choice of the writer Ellen Frey-Wouter to donate all her assets to cats, omitting her sister from the will, caused a lot of talk.
Similar to the case of Mrs. Lina, we can remember a lady who decided to leave almost € 360,000 to the cattery of Carpi.
And then how can we fail to remind us of an animated film that had a profound impact on us cat lovers. It almost seems like the story of the elderly Madame Bonfamille of the Aristocats ”.
However we can say that it is absolutely not a selfish choice, as many cats will benefit from its heritage. Surely the kittens guests of the cattery will appreciate this noble gesture from Mrs. Lina. It will certainly make their stay less difficult and sad than it already is.
Hoping that there are more and more people like her in the world, we thank her for what she has already done.
A company has made a kit to build reproductions of cats with Lego-like bricks . Ideal for all those who love cats and can't get enough of them. Are you a Lego lover? Are you a cat lover? If you answered yes to both questions, this is the article for you.
This is a story that has no end yet. It is a story of love and collaboration that was born not long ago and which is continuing with enthusiasm and activism. But let's go in order and start from the beginning. The story opens in the structure of the Elder San Camillo di Carugate, where some elderly guests who share a passion for animals.
Willy, the kitten who, after having climbed 3,000 meters above sea level, returned home safe and sound
It has already been nicknamed by everyone "Willy of miracles" the kitten who returned home safe and sound after getting on at 3 thousand meters above sea level . A story that arrives from Canosio, an Italian municipality of just 82 souls located in the province of Cuneo, in Piedmont .
The municipality of Valdobbiadene, in the province of Treviso, is the scene of a mysterious disappearance that has been holding many people in suspense for days. A cat named Augustine he got lost and the owner has been looking desperately for him for a long, long time.
One of the most extraordinary and unique characteristics of our four-legged friends is agility. Thanks to it they can in fact go and enter wherever they want, without constraints. About that, because cats like to take refuge in tight and visibly uncomfortable places?
