    A kind and heroic man has taken in around 100 homeless cats (strays, as well as pets abandoned by their owners who have left the beleaguered city … or been killed, though he doesn’t mention that. He is a “gattaro”, the Italian term for a cat-man who feeds and cares for strays (Anna Magnani was a famous gattara in Rome). No, I don’t know the term in Arabic, but I could ask someone from the Middle-East (not North Africa as I’m sure the term would be different).

    “Cat” in Arabic by the way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j19mtCxTFQM
