Reasons abound as to why the cat economy is flourish

ing in China. For one, pet cats are good stress-busters. And in these hectic, stressful times in urban areas, they could prove very useful, experts said.

Agreed Huang Xinyi, 28, a Beijing-based film producer. “Every time my cat purrs at me

, head-butts my face, and rubs against my leg, I want to hug him and kiss him all over.”

Many of her generation, aged 25 to 35, are busy pursuing busy careers in cities, far from their

hometowns. “I get lonely sometimes, but my cat has always been good company,” Huang said.

“Moreover, cats are more independent. I don’t have to walk my cat every day, but I play with him whenever I find some spare time.”

That is important for most young people struggling to find work-life balance in urban areas due to hectic lifestyles.

According to a report from Frost & Sullivan China, keeping cats for pets costs a little less than maintaining dogs.

Utsav Vasudeva, a 22-year-old law student in the souther

  city of Bengaluru, says the BJP “has done a lot of good work” but he is uneasy about its religious underpinnings.

  ”Any time that (situation) happens it is chaotic for the system, and I feel one thing Congress stands for is secularism, which the BJP does not,” he said.

  Modi’s rise has left many Indian liberals worried about an increase in religious intolerance at the expense of Muslim

s and other minorities. In contrast to the Congress Party’s secular stance, the BJP is strongly aligned with conse

rvative Hindu nationalists — the more extreme of whom want India governed in accordance with strict Hindu beliefs.

g in power, means that a huge population is ignored and sidelined,” Kutty told CNN.
