Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (ANK)

Mangaluru, Nov 30: Rajani Shetty, an animal lover in Mangaluru has won hearts after she rescued a cat which had fallen into a deep well at Konchady on November 27.

Rajani was called to the spot by locals from Konchady. It is said that the cat was stuck for almost two days in the well. Rajani, with the help of locals, got down through a rope and rescued the cat from the well.

The condition of the cat was good when it was taken out from the well, but it was in a fear as it was stuck in the well for almost two days.

In the previous week, she had also rescued a huge python at Car Street which was seen in bushes close to a residential area and later released into forest area.

It may be recalled that earlier this year she had rescued a dog from a well at Ballalbagh which garnered a lot of appreciation from the public for her bravery. The video of her bravery went viral on social media.

Rajani hails from Ballalbagh. She is an animal lover and known for rescuing street dogs and nurture them. For several years, Rajani has been feeding over 500 dogs across Mangaluru in the noon and night.

At present she has over 18 dogs, 15 cats and a few birds at her residence she is taking care of. The street dogs which are at her home were rescued after they were injured, helpless or handicapped.

    That Adventurous Cat Finally Found Something New …
    ‘If only I had something new to do,’ / she mused, ‘some wander most adventurous / like when the nearby fields grew tall / towering greens from which wild fowl fed and flew / as a feisty feline and precocious / I must have a venue change or else climb the wall!’ // She walked along the window pane / and looked out to neighbouring homes / where she hoped to find something / new, something beyond the back lane / rocky road where she often roams / with her green eyes wide and wandering. // When her attention was caught / by the towering dark roof / of the local convenience store / the cat at once decided she ought / to climb to its black peak as more proof / of her worth to those who already her adore. // Out the door, through adjoining yards she went / glancing round this and that corner / going over then under fences small and tall / till she stood at the wall she meant / to surmount as a foreigner / without fear (though windy it was) she may fall. // She looked passed blown leaves at two garbage cans / standing beside a wooden shed / right next to the store painted so pink / and up she jumped, her clawed feet and hands / reaching each peak by but a thread / yet of no better place she could think. // Having achieved her hazardous climb / she contemplated some swaying trees / unaware her human hostess stood near / at a bus stop, as passed the time / the woman looked up only to freeze / seeing her beloved black feline knowing no fear! // Thus the feline had done something big and new / and not seeing her master’s silent stare / descended and went home more than content / for from this day excitement the cat drew / indeed deciding she’d again climb—dare / herself to ascend any site worthy of her scent.

    I have no words to express the way Rajani Shetty recued the cat which was fallen in a deep well. I don't understand how the cat went through for two days. Kudos to Rajani and God bless you.
