Editorial Reviews

Over 200,000 stray cats now live in Rome, descendents of Egyptian cats brought there 3,000 years ago. These stray cats are not wild, but need human help to survive. However, Romans consider them euqal to rodents. This film documents six months at an Italian Cat Sanctuary, where it s a never ending struggle for the cats and the people who take care of them. DVD Special Features Chapter Selection, Still Gallery, Bonus Scenes; Photo Shoot, Interview with Lia Dequel, Cat Pride March, A Midsummer Night's Dream, My Feline Colony, The Farinello And Nelson Stories, Puppy Love, Sealdasole and Claire, Going Home.

4.0 out of 5 stars low-budget production, important issues June 15, 2008
If you care about animals at all, this is worth getting. I've been to Rome and seen the cat sanctuary at Largo Argentina, and this video sums it up nicely: Low budget, high ideals. I hope this video nets the Sanctuary some good publicity and donations to help deal with the feral cat problem in Italy. With a little more budget they could make a better video that would pull more heartstrings, which would get the funding to sterilize and treat more cats and reduce the feral population. I just wish the video had audio options so I could shut off the English voice-over and listen to the volunteers speaking Italian.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cats of Rome January 30, 2009
This was very informative, charming, a little sad in parts, but so uplifting compared with the stray situation in the "cradle of civilisation" - Greece, which would be a horror story in contrast with Rome, preferring mass poisoning after the tourists have left as a "strays solution" rather than sterilisation.
The cat ladies are remarkable and have at long last got the recognition they deserve. Though, Italy still needs to change its attitude towards humane euthanasia.

I hope the shelter continues to receive support and donations. I for one, will be trying to do my bit for them.
