The CaliCoin Story

The Power of Diversity & Inclusion

Cali & Karma Lafferty

A Dog. A Cat. One Homeless. One with an Amputated Leg.

The CaliCoin story starts with a family in Dubai with two pets: A Yorkie dog named “Cali” and an Arabian Mau cat named “Karma”.

 

The Lafferty Family adopted Cali from the Philippines in 2017, a Yorkshire Terrier from German and Canadian blood lines. Unfortunately, it was discovered Cali suffers from a genetic disorder called Osteopenia in which her bones do not heal properly.

 

After multiple surgeries and casts, Cali’s rear left leg needed to be amputated in mid-2020 after many rehabilitation efforts failed. But this setback did not dim Cali’s spirit and she forged on with three legs with total abandon, enjoying life to the fullest.

A big moment in Cali’s life occurred on October 11, 2020 when during Covid Lockdowns, a stray cat to be named “Karma” appeared near the Lafferty home at a neighbouring construction site; and clearly in need of a good meal. Karma was adopted and became over time a dear “sister” to Cali and they became the best of friends.

 

They enjoy playing with each other on the sandy beach, and also watching happenings on the street in front of their house. The 3-legged dog, and the orphan cat, became best friends and became full-fledged members of the Lafferty Family!

 

Cali and Karma are the source of the CaliCoin project idea. They are AOD’s and they demonstrate the joy and love an AOD can bring to a family and the world. They want to help other AOD’s, they know they are among the few lucky ones to be well-cared for and adopted.

So CaliCoin is Born!
