While going for a wander to catch some fresh air at lunch time, (and with a camera in my pocket wondering what new stencil art may have appeared), I came across these little fellows sunning themselves.
Now, this isn’t the first time I have seen these guys. I couple of weeks ago, I was wandering along the same path when I noticed a women in the canal acting a little strangely. It turned out she was placing some chicken pieces and a pile of dry cat food outside each of the drain entrances. As soon as she got a little distance away the little ferals would come out for a feed.
When I commented casually in passing (can’t remember what I said, something about her making the cats happy) she replied in a tone that made it appear as if she were performing a great community service, and that if she didn’t it would be terrible.
I can’t help but think that she is making the problem worse, although I guess there is the argument that if they are well fed they won’t eat the natives.
