Cat from Dinant {Belgium}

beggar dog cat

Christmas is all about giving, and more often than not those who give the most are the poorest of all.

On Sunday, I visited the Belgian city of Dinant with friends. At the entrance of the Church of Our Lady (Collegiale Notre-Dame), we found two beggars, Ivo and Yan, and their pets, Kenzo the dog and Tchoutchou the cat. They were the perfect representation of that Christmas spirit.

"We are so very grateful for our pets," Kenzo's owner said. "We'd do anything for them. First, we think about their wellbeing and only then do we eat."

Kenzo the dog was the one who set the right example. "Six months ago, Kenzo found a three-week-old kitten in the bushes. He refused to leave it behind. We had no choice but to bring the kitten along and to bottle feed it until he was grown enough."

The cat and dog truly taught those two beggars the spirit of Christmas.

  1. This is a heart warming story and much needed not only because of Christmas but what happened in Berlin at the Christmas market. Obviously this pussy cat does not stray

  3. I've always know beggars and homeless people to take better care of their pets than themselves. Love that the took care of the kitten, and the pup looks so happy.

  31. Just to be sure better to consult the vet. Cats also get infected with different diseases like urinary tract infection, upper respiratory infection, kidney failure and diabetes. This Is Pet
