I've noticed that there are a lot of stray-cat colonies in all the Italian cities we've visited. Indeed, all around Southern Europe from Barcelona to Greece. Often we buy some easily carried cat food for them, and if we see stray cats we try to help them out.
Sorrento is no exception, with lots of stray cats around the Marina Piccola. But at least one guy, a veritable St Francis, is doing his bit.
"What are we all waiting for?"
"That nice stripy signore is coming with our lunch!"
"Yay! Hope it's some nice fish pasta!"
"Sbigare! Sbigare! We're starving!"
"Nice stripy human! Grazie! Grazie!"
"I wonder if there is tiramisu for dessert!"
"Here's a new friend! The kind uomo has had her vaccinated at the vet."
"Mother cat with well-fed kittens. Time for a pisolino! [cat-nap]"
I don't know who he is, but we gave him a small donation and told him he was doing a good job.
