I'am living in Germany and I get to know the little wanderers via Instagram. I think they do so very very much for all the homeless, stray, injured, abandoned cats, so many cats were not alive anymore or were not fostered or living in a happy home without them. Their working is amazing, selfishness, they all have a normal live with friends, family and a job and eyetytime they are ready to rescue an animal. The streets of NY are one of the hardest and often humans don't care about them, wasted and abandoned them like trash.... And the little wanderers are the one and only help.... and rescue... I love what they doing, they are all Heroes and I pray to God for more supporting and understanding. And a changing in the behavior of people to all the creatures on earth.
