Recently, in some of my travels at the fringes of the European continent or in the Middle East, I stumbled upon many stray domestic animals. Even though I’ve always seen cats happily going about, minding their own business, the sight of stray dogs and of felines that clearly don’t have an owner anymore is pretty new to me. Sure, there are worse things – human poverty, hunger and disease just to name a few – but I always feel quite sad to see these animals, discarded by their human masters like the rubbish in which they rummage through, looking for the day’s meal.
