And there are far too many stray cats here. On a ten minute walk around the neighbourhood, you may see about twenty cats. And, it being Spring, many are pregnant. A month ago, I saw...erm...a gang rape of the cat world. (she managed to wriggle free eventually, although the males were brutal).
And these cats make hideous wailing sounds in the dark, really loud. It would be kind for an animal rights group to distribute contraceptive pills to all of these cats, disguised in their food.
There's also a turtle in a park just next door to me, the sight of it gave me a lot of pleasure. And then there was another in someone's garden just down the road and another and another. Turtles?!? In England and Sweden they may have been in children's petting zoos, but I never saw one.
