SHILLONG, Aug 16 - �Foku�, a rescued cat from Tura, has become the �Cutest cat rescued alive� in a contest organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

Foku was declared the national winner after a contest in which people were asked to cast their votes for the �Cutest cat rescued alive� from amongst cats which were rescued throughout India. Foku was rescued by Swarnima Tiwari from Tura.

Tiwari recalled that Foku was found lonely and drenched in rain near her house. �There was a landslide near our house and it was raining heavily. I went to check out and found Foku lonely, shivering and frightened in the rain and so brought it home,� Tiwari said.

Since that day Foku has become friendly and has become an important member of the family, Tiwari added.

PETA CEO, Poorva Joshipura said that Foku has proved that adopting a cat from the streets or an animal shelter can be fulfilling. �Although Foku won our contest, all rescued cats are winners because they have found loving homes.�

Apart from Foku, the second-place winner of the contest was Viber, whose guardian is Ariba Zainab of Aligarh. And the third-place winner is Charger, whose guardian is VL Dinpuii of Aizawl.

Foku will receive a certificate, a copy of PETA founder Ingrid Newkirk and Jane Ratcliffe�s book �One Can Make A Difference, a �My Cat Is a Rescue� T-shirt, a PETA T-shirt and a cat toy. The top three cats will appear in an upcoming issue of Animal Times, PETA�s magazine for members.
