Our World Jeddah: Cat and Door


I love the character of the old buildings in Al Balad, the oldest part of Jeddah, which is more than 1400 years old.  Many of the door frames are crooked - this one actually is not too bad, but still visibly not aligned straight.  Since many of these buildings were built prior to electricity, most have been unsafely wired for electricity.  It is common to hear of buildings in Al Balad destroyed by electrical fires.  Feral cats are plentiful all over Jeddah.  They depend on the kindest of people for food and they are often seen hanging around garbage dumpsters.

This little one reminds me of a cat I saw here earlier today and said hello to.
