Cat from Vela Luka {Korčula}

vela luka croatia

Korčula is a small Croatian island, about 2,5 hours away from Dubrovnik. Tourists often go there to explore the caves, to see the dense forest and pretty beaches, or to enjoy the sounds of folk music while strolling through the alleys of Vela Luka. Like the mainland, Korčula is teeming with community cats, most of which are well cared for. They are familiar with people and don't mind some petting and playing.

The five crescent-shaped beaches and staggering views over the Pacific Ocean turn the luxurious resort community of Wailea in South Maui into idyllic postcard heaven. Just like the rest of the island, Wailea is abound with stray cats, most of which come out in the evening when the barbecues are fired up, hoping to get their share of the meals. The kitty on the picture above is one of the many stray cats that hang around the Fairmont Kea Lani resort.

Cats from Cadaqués {Spain}

cadaqués

The Spanish resort town of Cadaqués is famous for its whitewashed houses, its canopies of wilting wisteria, and its large number of cats that take up residence in the picturesque little alleys.

Although Cadaqués is a popular place with Catalans, "the pearl of the Costa Brava" hasn't yet succumbed to mass tourism and has retained an air of authenticity. As such, the cats enjoy their afternoon nap without being disturbed by the tourists who usually prefer to lounge in the sun with a drink and tapas near the beach.

Cats from Corricella {Procida}

Procida is the smallest of the Flegrean Islands off the coast of Naples in southern Italy. Unlike Capri and Ischia, it is still largely untouched by tourists.

With its quaint narrow streets, its pink and yellow houses and its idyllic cliff, the port town of Corricella on Procida doesn't just look like a movie set, it was one too – some of the most famous movies that were filmed here are Il Postino (1994) and The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999).

Besides being an island of cinema, Procida is also an island of cats. They love patrolling the neighborhood early in the mornings when the streets are still quiet. In the harbor of the fishing village Corricella, they patiently wait for the fishermen to share their morning catch.

For the rest of the day, they snooze in the shade.

When they're hungry again, the cats try out their luck in the seafront restaurants, attempting to snatch some fish or sea fruit from unsuspecting tourists.

Animal-themed cafés are huge in South Korea, especially in Seoul. In these popular places, you can interact with the resident animals (mostly cats, dogs, or birds) while enjoying non-alcoholic drinks. One such place is the Kitty Cat Café in Pyeongtaek.

The place has entirely been designed with cats in mind. They have plenty of perches for them to climb on and several food and water bowls to eat and drink from.

Although most locals and tourists visit the café to interact with the cats, there are certain rules to follow to ensure the cats remain healthy, happy, and safe. You can't pick them up, for example, and you are not allowed to give them human food. Before entering, you have to sanitize your hands, take out your shoes, and put on house slippers.

You then have the choice between two seating areas – one western-styled and a traditional one where you can sit on the heated floor.

There's a variety of teas, coffees, and smoothies to choose from. These are slightly more expensive than in other cafés (around KRW7000 or $6.20) because the extra cost helps to pay for the cats' food, supplies, and medical assistance.

Cats from Bucharest {Romania}

The King Michael I Park (formerly Herastrau Park) is a green oasis in the city of Bucharest in Romania. It's a popular attraction amongst both locals and tourists, who go there to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere, to tour the Herastrau lake by boat, or to see the many statues of important people in the history of the EU. However, the best reason to visit the park is the large number of stray cats that roam the premises.
