Or do they disgust you? My living conditions here in Serbia and my principles don’t allow me to keep a cat or a dog. I love animals, but I have a clear conception of how they should live. They should have lots of space to roam freely and spend lots of time in the open, which is not possible if you live in a flat. In my opinion, only homeowners with sufficiently big gardens should consider keeping cats or dogs. Otherwise the animals will be wronged.
As I am left with no other option, I try to find stray animals to pet and feed during my strolls. Usually, I take the DP2 Merrill with me, to take some photos. The focal length is excellently suited (DP3M is too long) for taking pictures with one hand while stroking the animal with the other hand. The following photos are, as is customary on my blog by now, available on Flickr in full resolution. 🙂
