The psyche of a people perhaps ...


istanbul kitten, originally uploaded by - di.

Sometimes, while out here and wandering, I've wondered whether the psyche of a nation isn't somehow hinted at by the way that they treat their street animals.

Istanbul is also a city of street cats and dogs and sure, sometimes their life is imperfect but so many are tagged and neutered and left free, fed by the people.

Here's one I found in the gardening section of the market at Eminonu ... up the back from the leeches and ducklings.

Leeches ... Yummmmmm?

oh what a lovely...thinking of my cat rescuing friends in brussels, who vaccinate and neuter street cats with their own hard-owned money....
