While strolling around Cairo my colleague took us to a lovely closed off area to sit and drink tea. There were so many different types of tea that were an utter treat. While sitting and talking, a cat had come over to get some attention. Cat’s seem to be very much a part of the city, you can see them everywhere, walking along walls, sitting on car roofs or walking between alleys.
Cairo has a history of cats since the days of the pharaohs but to see them being largely excepted throughout the city is really interesting to see. While cats have become a big problem, the Egyptians also know that reducing the population means increasing the population of rats!
