Stray cats surviving on the city streets are more or less like convicts on death row – eventually something will put them down. I might be a car, a storm drain, a poisoned dinner some old lady placed next to the garbage bin.
Pharmacist, rescuer and cat lover (obviously), this woman – whose name, whereabouts and location of her business I cannot reveal – tries to kill me with cuteness overload every time I got there to buy a painkiller or sth.
Garbage cats are not of a specific breed or type. They are simply the ones that happen to live in neighborhoods where residents consider them urban fauna, and nothing else. Continue reading Garbage Cats – The Rubbish, The Dirt And The Truth
