During my one week stay in Tunisia, I have seen the four or maybe more cats who lived on the hotel ground. I can't say exactly because they were all grey, except my little friend a ginger cat.
One of the grey once, not shy at all !
The ginger one adopted me immediately, cats are clever they know who likes cats and who not. Especially with the guests ! The poor thing probably had a fight with another male and I know from my Arthur's vet, that males when they fight bite the tail of the enemy ! He had nearly half of his tail bitten off, and the wound was still a little wet and bloody. He also had a deep wound on his back. Around he had leaked the fur away. When I think that we put these awful collars on the neck of our cats that they don't touch a wound !
He was so friendly and affectionate and wandered around the terrace. I brought him sausage after breakfast and turkey or chicken after lunch and dinner. And he knew it right away ! He had an incorporated watch, because he was there punctually after each meal !
He had such a sweet face and at the end of my holidays I checked the wounds and they were almost healed !
There are many cats around, the trouble is they are not neutered and have babies all the time, which of course are killed. My heart was aching ! Fortunately I heard that slowly some tourists have founded an organization to spay the cats. But not enough. Nevertheless this one looked really happy with his life amongst the hotel guests. I wasn't the only one who fed the cats and they also got food from the kitchen.
Apparently Mohamed was a cat lover and had cut off his sleeve not to disturb his sleeping cat, therefore cats are well tolerated.
When I came home, my cats behaved as if I had never been away. Of course they were spoiled by Mr. G. What a pampered life they have with various cat menus to make them eat ! I wished all cats in the world had the same life !
