Love for tails: Dalilah have always been a cat lover. She loves all living creatures, yet cats have been her life's pastel colour. Throughout her 81 years of livelihood, she has raised and nurtured more than 50 cats. All of them were either strays or some were bought from the stores. When asked, she said,"I couldn't help looking at those longing eyes. They were telling me a story, speaking to my soul. Begging me to bring them home, I saved up money from the years of being a teacher and 'rescued' a little over 20 of them from the pet stores."
Career in education: A teacher, a mother, a housewife. Sounds pretty normal, except when you have a lot of kids to take care of at work and 5 kids when you are at home, family values to preserve and a cat farm. Only a major cat person is able to juggle as such. Multitasking between teaching at a high school and managing her 'cat farm' was a major milestone in her 20's when she just got married to the love of her life.
Tails make her world go round: Alone and without enough financial and physical support, this great grandmother of 6 and of 22 grandchildren believes that integrating kids with animals are the best type of therapy for one's well-being. She hopes with the help of public's donation, she is able to continue her love for these furry tail and in the long run, instill her love from generation to generation until it becomes a legacy. We heard you Dalilah! Let's make her love a reality.
