The Island of Korcula, Croatia.

This old man was roaming around the village while we were wandering the streets, taking in the sites and sounds. He called out and we turned around, thinking he was talking to us. We soon realised he was actually calling out to the local stray cats. In his bag he had food for them and this must have been feeding time.

The cats all knew him well and came out from several hiding spots to get their lunch. It soon became apparent that this old man wasn’t in a fit state of mind. His motions were hesitating and he looked lost. After a while he sat down with the cats, looking like he was collecting his thoughts or trying to recall how he ended up here in the first place.

It was sad to witness, but something I wanted to remember.

    This is a beautiful capture love the ctas keeping him company. May be the only company he has all day. It is hard when we get older and frail and not as sharp mentally as we used to be. People tend to keep their distance like it may be something you can catch.

  • You’re so right, Karen. It’s sad that people have to go through this, but what’s sadder is how it’s dealt with by society. I’m glad this one connected with you so well, thank you for the great comment, really raises awareness!

    Our pets don’t judge us, perhaps that is a lesson we should all learn from them. Great image. Alma

  • That is so very true, Alma. So much we could learn from the animal world. I’m glad you appreciate this one, thanks for the great comment :)
