The Cats of Morocco

Morocco is a cat lover’s paradise, much like Turkey.

As in many Islamic countries, cats are far more prevalent than dogs and you will find an abundance of kitties everywhere, on street corners, in alleyways, roof terraces, and particularly sitting under meat stalls in the souks.

It is a different story for dogs. They are considered by many as ‘dirty’ animals so Moroccans tend to be scared or uneasy and stay away from them. Having said that the few we saw were in reasonable condition, there was only one little mite (I didn´t take a picture as looking at him broke my heart). I was desperate to take him home but obviously precious little chance of being able to sneak him through airport security.
