Moroccan cat

Moroccan cats are – on the whole – the thinnest and most mangy I have ever seen. As in Rome and Istanbul, they can be found in every public space. Unlike the cats in those cities, most of the ones here look acutely ill. Most look well under a year old, so they probably do not endure for very long.

It’s sad to see.

i remember writing about cats in morocco.

they’re also largely left un-neutered, which makes for symphonic wailing late at night.

of course, this probably causes the problem.

Sympathizing with all creatures makes the most sense.

Might it not make more sense to lament the people living in poverty?

On the positive side, thin cats means few rats.
