Being able to look after their own pet helps Simon and the group he stays with experience a sense of companionship. A few years ago, they befriended a black and white cat they found in the nearby alleyway, who they now call Meow Meow.
"Meow Meow is over 10 years old and we found her with a baby kitten. Unfortunately, her baby kitten didn't make it but we now treat Meow Meow as our own" he says.
During the day when it is very hot, Simon says Meow Meow usually hides under the boxes so it's very rare she comes out like this to play with Simon. "I was lucky that day", he says.
