Cats

In our society, cats are considered part of the family and are affectionately called 'kitty' and 'pussycat'. Responsible cat owners are aware of and care for the animals' natural needs. 

In contrast, hundreds of thousands of stray cats live on the streets – even in the middle of Germany. Many strays are ill and suffer from hunger. Where unwanted, they are often brutally killed.
