Sad cats

Outside the back of a local restaurant I pass by frequently, the kitchen staff have had two stray cats tied up with nylon string for a couple weeks

They appear to be giving the cats food scraps, so they're reasonably fed. My limited experience with cats tells me that these cats probably don't enjoy being tied up near the garbage dumpsters any more than they'd like to go for a walk on a leash.

"These cats are being fattened up for the soup pot, or for the kebab vendor", you say. Well, if this were southern China instead of northern China, or if it were a Cantonese restaurant, then I'd agree with you. But these are most definitely being rehabilitated and raised as pets. They are sad lookin' cats though.
