Picture of young cat in shelter like being in prison

This photograph has mood. It puts us into the mind of this young cat at a shelter as she looks up and out surrounded by her cage. I’m not criticising animal shelters as, in general, they provide a very valuable service to society and to domestic and stray cats. But perhaps we’ve become too accustomed to them. Cats in small cages. I wonder if we have learned to accept it even though it is an image of our failure in the human-to-cat relationship. Even if we have got used to seeing cats in cages, the cats have not. We really don’t know for sure how rescue cats feel when inside these cages at shelters. Strange place, confined place, strange noises, strange people, stranger cats, strange smells. Unnatural. Uncomfortable.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
