This was sometime in February, 2016.
It was interesting to watch a cat and a young dog play catch-catch together in the slums below.
Later 3 big area dogs arrived and started chasing the cat, initially what seemed like play ended in 4 dogs on a hot chase to get the cat. I was afraid it would end up in something terrible as it was 4 against 1, with the cat running here and there and escaping by a whisker, suddenly it shot in the direction of a tree, climbed up to safety, leaving those 4 dogs pawing up against the tree trunk, panting, barking and wagging their tails but no way they could get to the cat high up! The great escape.
Survival is the name of the game. Cut trees? They are refuge to cats in such emergencies.
