A COUPLE in Alor Setar, Kedah, spends RM100 daily to feed 80 cats, including strays, reported Harian Metro.
Rosli Ismail and his wife Mariam Roin wake up at 6am everyday to buy 3kg of fish for the cats.
The fruit sellers, who are both 47, would boil half of it to feed 30 cats at their home in Alor Janggus while the other half would be brought to the marketplace where they trade.
“I will ask a restaurant to fry the fish before mixing with 2kg of rice to feed some 50 stray cats.
“We also provide milk and cat food in packets especially for hungry kittens,” said Rosli, who started feeding the cats with his wife two years ago.
He said that he could not stand seeing the cats hungry or mistreated.
Mariam said they plan to one day start a cat hotel business.
> The same daily reported a man’s bahulu business enjoying brisk sales once he started posting pictures of himself wearing traditional clothes while making the cakes.
Bahulu Idaman owner Abdul Rahman Shahroni, 30, wore a Malay groom’s outfit and kimono while preparing the bahulu at his kitchen in Pontian, Johor.
He said the marketing gimmick, which he started last year, worked as he would even get orders from Singaporean customers.
“I learnt how to make the bahulu from my wife Nur Diyana Azman while still working in Kuala Lumpur and I took a week to master it.
“Looking at my wife, 29, who was pregnant at the time, I decided to quit my job and return to Johor to run this business full time,” he said.
According to Abdul Rahman, the Malay groom outfit and the kimono were part of a collection in a boutique he runs with his wife.
