The Dog and the Cat

This man is often to be seen in the pedestrian street of Menton begging with his dog and his cat.

He seems to have a relationship with them and certainly the little Chihuahua and the cat play happily together.

I still wish people wouldn't try to attract money though by displaying animals in this way.


 On voit souvent cet homme, mendiant avec son chien et son chat, dans la rue piétonne à Menton.

Il semble avoir des liens avec eux et le petit chihuahua et le chat jouent certainement joyeusement ensemble.

Mais j'aimerais que les gens n'essayent pas de gagner de l'argent en exposant des animaux de cette façon. 


  1. I am with you about this mode of begging on the street, Jilly. They are not only exploiting innocent animals, but the French people who love them so.

  2. I saw a man kneeling in the pedestrian street in Menton one day. Without animals. I thought, on the way back I would give him 1 or 2 €, because I felt sorry for him. But he was away then. I went to a supermarket to buy some water and guess who was standing in the queue in front of me paying his cans of beer? I was glad then I didn't give any money!

    since if like to read it afterward my links will too.

  4. The woman on the right looks disdainful. Perhaps she agrees.

    I don't know the man's situation, but when I see animals living with the homeless my heart is tugged in different ways. In the US we euthanize millions of dogs and cats each year, so I'm glad these animals have someone to love them and their humans, likewise.

  5. Petrea and Jilly, this question is a tricky one. But there's no doubt that seeing a cat and a dog playing together is bound to attract people's attention, and that's half the job done when you hope for donations.
