There are a lot of stray cats in my neighborhood, which a few neighbors feed. Every time I try to pet one of them, they ignore me or run away. But when none of the other neighbors has given them any food, they 'reunite' in front of my door meowing really loud. I just caught myself reflecting on this and realised how this situation is so similar to a lot of humans'. When our 'friends' need us, we are there for them but when we need them, they just turn their backs on us. It's sad.
