XI'AN - Animal lovers in Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, have set up a facility for homeless cats that have developed psychological problems as a result of their vagrant lives.

"Stray cats have their own psychological problems, and we hope to help them in order to restore their trust in humans," He Yue, a cat lover in Xi'an, said.

The 25-year-old woman founded a bar a month ago to help stray cats that have been injured or have psychological problems. It's also a place where local cat lovers can share their experience in helping stray cats.

"Some disabled stray cats were injured in accidents and some were injured by people who mistreated them. Cats are very sensitive animals and will learn to distrust people if someone has hurt or scared them," she said.

She is an employee of a local company who cares for stray cats in her spare time. In the process, she's gotten to know many cat lovers who also help the city's feral felines.
