Egypt is not unique in that it is home to just about as many stray animals as it is residents. Around every corner, under ever car and through every alley are sets of eyes watching you. In my stairwell alone I had over twenty cats that would eagerly await any door opening and food offering. At night the dogs howl as they run around a quieter neighbourhood in their packs. By the end of my three month stay, I had simply lost count of how many animals I had encountered, many of which are malnurished.
