A 28-year-old Casablancan, Ayoub Ghachaoui is well known on the TikTok social network for the love he gives to stray cats and dogs. He helps them in different areas of Casablanca, feeds them, takes care of them… Le360 met him, he wanted to talk about his involvement with these abandoned animals.


Ayoub Ghachaoui is not yet thirty years old, and he is already the founder and manager of a pet shop in the Sidi Othmane district, where he has set up a small space dedicated to the cats and dogs he has collected from the street, and who need care, such as a dog with mange (a contagious skin disease caused by a parasite), or who are looking for their new family – such as a litter of tricolor kittens with green eyes abandoned in the streets of the metropolis, and which he has taken in.

Interviewed by Le360, Ayoub Ghachaoui told how the videos he posts on TikTok have gradually gone viral, and how his followers insist that he does not cease his involvement with these abandoned animals.

Although he holds an IT administrator’s license and a management diploma, Ayoub Ghachaoui has not found a job. Never mind, the young man had a happy inspiration when he told himself that he could better flourish by opening a pet store.

Shortly after the realization of his project, and to communicate his love for cats and dogs, he began to share videos on TikTok about the food that is best for cats.

Ayoub Ghachaoui then started sharing videos of cats and dogs that needed medical attention because they were sick.

The number of his followers on TikTok has since grown steadily, and he receives many messages and comments from Internet users, who thank him for his involvement, and insist that he continue to take care of These animals.

Ayoub Ghachaoui also met, during his marauding in Casablanca, a young Casablancan, who welcomes in her own house about fifty cats. The young man brings her, from time to time, croquettes and terrines from his pet store, and also helps her to adopt the cats she takes in.
