Catze / Public feeding machine


"Catze" is a public feeding machine for stray cats. People can donate to feed stray cats using a smart phone. In return, cats send their pictures to people who supported.

Stray cats refer to the cats who live in the city. We are living with a lot of these cats. Some people hate the stray cats for reasons such as bad feelings cry or beat the garbage bag.
However, a rejection is prejudice. While the average life expectancy of normal cats is 15 years, stray cats are only 2-3 years.
They suffer from cold and hunger since birth, because they are exposed to the risk of such senseless capture.

"Catze" is a new co-way proposal to respect lives.
