Galina relays what her grandparents told her about how to treat pets and domestic animals: Both my grandparents never touched our cat. They always said to me that I should not touch pets and domestic animals – our cat, the chickens in the yard, and our dog – and let animals go wherever they wanted to. If a stray dog wandered into our yard, my grandmother always told me to give it some food. My grandfather often said that a stray dog could be a relative of ours that was reborn as a canine. It is interesting that they said nothing of this to my parents.
