Integrating her love of animals and music, Tuana says they have built a cat house in Zeytinburnu and they have kept about 100 dogs by earning money from her street perform until now and she adds, “I am still working and I am taking food for them.”
Stating that she will continue to perform on the streets for animals, Tuana says her main purpose is to establish a village for cats in the children’s park.
