When I saw the Cat Collar project at the neighborhood festival, I wanted to both leave a permanent and meaningful gift for my grandson when he grows up, and contribute to the project with the awareness of teaching the love of animals to our children from a young age. I can't wait to go feed the cats with my granddaughter when the cat house is built. It is also a delicacy that the home will be named after someone we value. When they grow up, they will also have a sense of belonging to this area; they will take care of the cats in their own park. I was also happy that the beginning will be made with my grandson's name. I hope it sets an example and KarşıyakaResidents equip all the parks with these beautiful cat houses.”
