In Northeast India, even animals are talented! Well, believe us when we say this because this particular cat from Assam in en-route to making her state proud while becoming famous already! Wondering who is this personality?

Meet Nanu the rescued cat- one who who was close to drowning in a pond in Tezpur, Assam. She was rescued from a pond by Shruti Mishra, an Air Force official, on a rainy day and now, she is one of the ten finalists of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India's Cutest Rescued Cat Alive contest.


Mishra had heard about PETA's contest from the same military vet who saved Nanu one year ago. PETA's annual online contest ‚ which started in 2014, is a bid to encourage people to adopt animals instead of buying them.

The ten "finalist cats", hailing from different states from across the country, were selected among "hundreds of entries" on the basis of how "inspirational and motivating the submitted rescue story was." The public can now vote for their favorite cat — and the winners will be announced on July 30, on the basis of vote count. PETA also has a similar contest for rescued dogs.
