I'm excited to announce that Traveling Cats is a finalist in the prestigious BlogPaws Nose-To-Nose Awards. Many thanks to everyone who has helped me grow this blog. A thought goes also to my cat Avalon who passed away in July 2013, because without him Traveling Cats would never have existed.

In 2010, wooden toy wholesaler Yutaka Katayama picked up a camera and started taking pictures of ordinary life in Kyoto, Japan. Since then photography has become an obsession.

"It's my life's work," he says.

Katayama has taken thousands of pictures of the legendary ancient city that once was the imperial capital of Japan. He has also found a favorite theme: the stray cats that are found all over Kyoto.

"I feel the strength to live from a stray cat," Katayama wrote. "They seem to live a quiet life always looking for food and a place to live while keeping well their distance to the human."

Katayama prefers to take pictures early in the morning when there are fewer tourists around (Kyoto has 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites). Like many cats, the photographer visits the same places over and over, where he hopes he will experience a new feeling every time.

Cats from Venice {Italy}

Famous for its beautiful waterways, Venice is also renowned for its slinky, stoic, adorable cats. 

Stone and terra-cotta plazas, languid canals, windows with brightly painted shutters, and spiraling wrought iron set the stage for the ramblings of these lucky felines. 

These cat pictures are both a portrait of Venice's famous felines and an homage to a magical place.
