Like the saying goes here in Cuba, they have to get out and “fight their way through” just like everybody else. Each has their own mechanism.
Some are tireless workers who dig furrows in fields until they find some potato or yam.
Then there are those that guard the tables at farmers’ markets or help their owners to cross the street and do the shopping.
Others escape from their houses the best they can when they are not given the chance to visit their significant others. But it’s more common for them to prefer to simply be funny and faithful helpers of those who take them in.
