In America, we are used to seeing squirrels or deer crossing the streets; instead in Sicily you see dogs or cats. There are many stray dogs and cats that roam the streets, but they are mostly all harmless. Many people leave food out daily for the strays. My nonna left food out for two different puppies, and eventually they came back every day; now she keeps the two dogs as her own. Their names are Shelli-Bimba and Mambo.
