Rabat – At times when public spaces are empty from passersby and food scraps are meager due to the COVID-19 lockdown, some Moroccan authorities are stepping in to care for the country’s stray cats and dogs.

Photos of Tangier policemen stopping to feed stray cats have circulated social media platforms, receiving applause from internet users.

One post shows a policeman holding a bucket of food and surrounded by at least 15 famished cats.
