I couldn´t believe that there were so many fish hawks, and herons. I missed the trees too - funny was, that each one of them was labeled...
Rats are in every town, mostly dogs catch them, rarely cats. And the dog usual don´t eat them... sorry for your cat though :(

I stood at this very harbor!
What amazes me is that you would find anything at all in Hong Kong!!
It seems to be all concrete! My first reaction was ,where are the plants and animals? I can not live here!
I found some trees and birds around the "Big Buddha" which I liked very much. Other than that it is so devoid of any other forms of life.
While waiting at a bus stop, i saw a sign which warned me about Rat poison.
i stood there wondering ." What if a cat eats a mouse that ate the poison?"
Ironically ,five years later, My lovely cat died of secondary rodenticide poisoning!!:))
