I have been here a week and have seen elebenty gazillion dogs, but despite having an eye for felids, I’ve seen precisely one cat—this one creeping along the wall of my pension in Porto. I was so excited that I ran into the garden in my underwear to snap it.
It is a basement cat.
Using statistical methodology, I calculate that
a. the ratio of dogs to cats in Portugal is about 750 to 1
b. there are about 1,231.83 cats in this country
