Create A Better World For Pets With Whiskas

Initiated in 2015 by Whiskas, "Jom Sayangi Haiwan Kita" is a global initiative aims at raising awareness on the importance of taking care of pets, particularly cats and encourage responsible pet owners among schoolchildren aged between 10 to 12 years old. The program which started with just 15 schools in the Klang Valley is now extending its reach to Penang, Perak and Johor which covers more than 45,000 schoolchildren in 65 primary school.

According to Ong Chiek Ming, Mars Petcare Director; 'It's imperative to instill a sense of responsibility and the right mindset in children while they're young. 'Jom Sayangi Haiwan Kita' helps to equip them with the right information on how they can take care of their pets. Owning pets can be rewarding for both parents and children especially when they understand the responsibilities and learn how to take a good care of them. This understanding imparted when young will remain into adulthood to cultivate good habits when it comes to pets ownership"

The one hour interactive session gave schoolchildren an opportunity to learn more about cats characteristic as well as interesting facts about them. It's also provided information on how to feed your cats with the right food and how to ensure they're healthy. Some of interesting facts about cats such as their whiskers which can detect heat and obstruction in darkness and effects on food on their overall health were also shared during the session too.

As we all knew, pets are found to be able to live longer and healthier when they are well taken care of. Not only that, it also strengthen the family bonds and encourage the little ones to be more nurturing and compassionate towards others when they grow older. By educating children on the importance of being a responsible pet owner, we in a way help creating a more loving world for pets. For more information about the program, kindly visit the link below. Until then, let's create a better world for our furry friends and have a lovely week ahead lovelies, adieu~
