Pets are common in the slums. For prevention, like a cat keeps rats out of your house, or safety reasons just like the dogs of the youth group in Kariobangi slums. Also people keep them for friendship and company. Frei Wamale shows us the way to take care of pets: a proper diet, good training and your friendship. Your reporters for African Slum Journal are Ursula Akinyi and Eriss Khajiri.
