SELANGOR’S stylish and elegant Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin has a soft spot for animals and has rescued many stray cats over the years. According to her sister Datin Dr Norely Abd Rahman, Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin’s love affair with cats started when she was about five years old.
“We moved from Melaka to Kampung Baru (in Kuala Lumpur) when our father retired from the armed forces. There was a female cat in our new house that delivered four kittens. That was when we first started having cats,” recalled Dr Norely, an active rescuer who has also helped countless cats over the years.
