In 2002, Simone Loertscher visited Rome and Torre Argentina from Switzerland for the first time. She has never forgotten her first impression: it was dark inside and the cages, full of cats with sad eyes, made her cry. She said that she then decided that one day, she would give a TA cat a home.

Zacinto arrived in Torre Argentina on April 13, 2007. He and 55 other cats were taken away by the health authorities from the home of two sisters where these cats had a precarious existence. None of the cats were spayed or neutered, they had been reproducing for some time, propagating the crippling herpes virus which is why all of them were partially or totally blind. We took in three of these cats, one of them was Zacinto. He was totally blind and his eyes were badly infected and had to be removed. Then came Marie ..and this is her story.
