Out of the kindness of her heart, Atia Mathai spotted a blind cat on the street and decided to take him home. While wondering how a blind cat would fare, the very next day she walked into a room to find him sitting calmly on a high stool. “Like the Lion King,” she laughs. At that moment she knew his name would be Rajah.
Despite being blind, Rajah can play and enjoy life like any other cat. Atia says, “He makes you appreciate the way he navigates the world. He mapped out the new house so quickly. When transplanted out of his comfort zone, his reaction is: ‘I will explore this, and see what to do’. I admire that courage he has. It’s a lesson for us”.
