I did not intend to become the Cat Lady. It just happened. The Cats of the World have intrigued me and now I’m hooked.
Of course there are dogs. ¬†Remember the dog bite in Thailand? ¬†But cats are much more patient than dogs – aloof As well and therefore easier to
photograph. ¬†And so I do.
It all began by accident, while traveling in Bulgaria. ¬†It was here where I first began to see many feral cats. ¬†Hadn’t seen cats in Asia (opps let’s not talk
about why…), New Zealand or Seychelles. ¬†But there they were in Bulgaria sleeping in the sun, rubbing against my leg, strutting down the street.
The first cat
photo I posted on Instagram was a surprising hit with my followers. ¬†So then there was another post, and another and next thing I knew I was stopping to take photos of cats around the world;Bulgaria, Croatia, Slovenia, Portugal, Spain and the Camino, Tunisia and now here in Morocco.
I’m hooked. ¬†But, it’s also sad. ¬†We don’t see the stray dog population like we saw in Thailand and Vietnam (although Thailand was so much worse than Vietnam). ¬†Where are the dogs? ¬†Are they using spay
and neuter practices for dogs and not cats? ¬†We do see some dogs, but the cats outnumber the dogs easily 50 to one.
Some of the cats look cared for, but many do not. ¬†In fact, clearly some are ill and won’t make it. ¬†The smallest babies seem to be fending for
And so I have become a cat whisperer. ¬†A little kindness and love to the creatures of the world.
Cats of the world – what will the next countries bring?
