Unfortunate felines

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.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.

  1. 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.
