Maybe it was just that I didn't see many dogs in Jakarta. Instead, I often encountered cats when I wandered around in the alleys. I am not sure if they are domesticated cats or stray cats, but it is the same everywhere in the world that they spend their time innocently in the alleys. The kitten in this photo was no different. When I pointed my camera at the cat playing alone in an alley in Glodok, it seemed to be interested in the camera and stared at me. It looked as if it wanted to say, "What on earth are you doing?"

In general, dogs are not very popular in Muslim areas. If you ask them whether I am a dog person or a cat person, most people are definitely cat people. In the Muslim world, dogs are considered unclean animals. This is because in the Hadith, the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, dog saliva is considered unclean, and he instructed that it should be washed seven times if it gets on the body. If Muhammad, the last and greatest prophet, said that, there is nothing more a dog can do.

On the other hand, cats are loved. In anything, Muhammad even said that "love for cats is an aspect of faith," and his treatment of them is quite different from that of dogs. Unlike dogs, they are considered unblemished even in procedures based on faith, and are even allowed to enter mosques. Well, looking at the innocent eyes of a kitten, I can't help but feel that they are indeed spotless.
