Kashmira Shah, an actress, dancer and a model, is the granddaughter of famous Hindustani classical singer, Anjanibai Lolekar. A few of her films include Yes Boss, Pyar to Hona Hi Tha, Jungle, Murder, etc. On TV, she has appeared in Big Boss, Nach Baliye 3, etc. Kashmira is a born pet lover. Here’s more on her pet love…

Born instinct…

Kashmira Shah’s love for animals started when she was just three and a half years old. She brought home a kitty. “I still remember tiny sweet feline…my first pet, I called her Manya,” she fondly recalls.

The current family…

Currently, she has a Fantastic Four at home two Persian cats – Mercedes and Chanel; American Eskimo – BOO and a rescued dog (new entrant to the family, just a few months ago) – Bhatku. To start with, she shares a thought, “animals give unconditional love to everyone and anyone. They are really Gods.”

BOO is an American dog, his parents were show dogs in America…he’s been spreading cheer in Kash’s life for past nine years.

Krushna adds, “Before Kash came into my life, I was not at all a dog lover. It was just after experiencing this wonderful bond between Kash and BOO, I couldn’t stop myself falling for him. Today, I am proud of being a pet lover and sharing my life with them.”

Krushna, Kash and their precious paws together make one Purrfectly Pawfect family. They make most of everyday.

What Kashmira loves about BOO…

My love for them is immense; I can never imagine my life without them. And BOO is the best dog anyone can ever ask for. Interestingly, BOO’s wonderful persona is the outcome of his camaraderie with Zoey (another pet dog, who died) and Kash still recalls him lovingly. “Whenever I see BOO performing all the sweet antics, it reminds me of Zoey. And I thank BOO for keeping Zoey alive…it’s really out-of-the-world feeling.”

Sing ‘n’ Swing…

“Every morning my dog wakes me up with a song and he sings so well that he’s a singing star now. And in our lives when we are depressed…his one song brings all the lost happiness back in our lives and we enjoy together.”

It’s OK Mom!…

And she adds, “Whenever I am angry, BOO will leave no stone unturned to calm me down. Once my help didn’t turn up and I was extremely angry. Boo and kitties with their persuasive powers won over my anger.

The way to a pet’s heart is through his stomach…

These kids are well-cared and nurtured, as Kash adds, “We never leave our pets alone. One family member is always there to look after them.” All their daily needs are keenly supervised by Kash herself. Moreover, she’s a wonderful cook and her pets just love to gorge on Mamma’s recipes.

Unconditional love for all dogs…

She equally loves a stray…a pariah or a pedigree dog. On asking about her view on animal welfare, Kash explains that she is actively engaged in animal welfare.

Be nice to dogs…

On a concluding note, Kash appeals to all humans to ‘be human’ to man’s best friend, and adds, “I am heartbroken when I see an abandoned animal. What adds to my apathy is people’s indifferent attitude towards these mute creatures. So ‘Be Human’ and never leave any animal alone in suffering, it won’t take much time…it really heals.

In short, my message is just ‘Be nice to dogs.”
