Ottawa

It's certainly a nice city, a beautiful place to walk around especially the Parliament ... and the cat sanctuary. thumbs up

Am not a cat person actually as I am more a dog person ... but I do like the cat sanctuary. I even bought a cat food in the market as donation laugh

One question though, why there are lots of "beggars" asking for "change"? And they don't look homeless to me. confused So whenever someone asks "Do you have change". I just reply, "Yep, I do" and continue walking giggle

Yeppers, cats are good little pets! I've had a few in my time.

Be careful when you say "Yep" and just keep walking. There are too many loonies who would take that personally and may do something harmful.

What I say is that I tithe in my church and they are welcome to go find food and donations there. I give them the address because most of these "beggars" are in it just for the cash. And I know that for a fact because I worked at a homeless shelter and many of them spoke about the money they made. Some up to $100+ for the day.

Ed, I don't like cats actually, but I feel bad for the abandoned ones. Thankfully, there are some people who are taking care the stray cats. thumbs up

I also feel bad with real homeless people who cannot afford their food but not for any lazy person who dresses well, and they do look a very well fed person. So whenever I pass a person who asks for food, I always give him/her my sandwich which I always have with me. grin




Thanks for the advice. I will pay attention to that when am in NYC laugh





Hi Lachicabonita wave

Yep, lots of stray cats in the cat sanctuary near Parliament building in Ottawa. If you are a cat person, you will be in heaven. The cats are well fed too. grin

I love the wild squirrels there more and they are sharing the cat food grin I also see a wild groundhog which make my day laugh
