Bulgarian Summer: Furry Friends

There are many strays in Bulgaria -- street dogs and feral cats wherever you look: on porches and stoops, in the bushes, in front of the restaurants, everywhere.  I won't go into detail how and why this happened, because I really don't want to get upset right now, but I can tell you that my main goal every time I return home is to buy huge bags of dog and cat food and walk around to feed the furbabies.  Sometimes I give them pets and hugs, if they'd let me.  And I always, always talk to them with my most kind and sweet voice -- if not else, these animals should feel loved at least for a minute in their lives.
