In this July 23, 2016 photo, a quarantined cat sits in a cage at the private shelter Funasissi, in the working-class Caracas neighborhood of El Junquito, Venezuela, after he was rescued on the streets, abandoned by his owners. As Venezuela’s economic crisis deepens, food shortages and rising poverty are forcing once-middle-class Venezuelans to do the unthinkable and let their pets starve, or abandon them in the streets.
