When I lived in Haifa, Israel, in the 90s, the town was infested with feral cats. We called them “Haifa cats.” Haifa cats were the most rag-tag bunch of battle-scarred felines you could ever hope to meet. They were tough. Rumor was that the city once had a rat problem and let loose stray cats to deal with it, but the cats multiplied and suddenly the city had a cat problem. Don’t know whether the story was true, but I like the idea of a real-life version of The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.
