Cat from Ravello {Italy}

This cat picture was taken in Ravello, Italy, and previously published in the photo essay book CATS OF ITALY / GATTI d'ITALIA by Janet Wellington. "In 2012, I was invited to attend the Women’s Fiction Festival in Matera, Italy, to speak on a panel about indie publishing—along with two other indie authors," says author Janet Wellington. "In the weeks before my trip, as I was researching fun things to do and see in Italy, I began seeing references to the many feral cats in the country. I was traveling with my BAF (best author friend) and we planned to spend our last four days in Rome before coming home...so, when I discovered the Torre Argentina Roman Cat Sanctuary, a no-kill shelter in Rome for homeless cats, I knew had to visit! Before arriving in Rome, though, I began seeing cats…everywhere…and I always kept my camera ready to take a photograph. I suppose that’s when the idea of the book CATS OF ITALY really started germinating. Cats found me first on the Amalfi Coast—in Ravello and Positano. Later, cats found me in Matera, on the Island of Ischia, and finally in Rome and at the Cat Sanctuary of Rome, also known as Torre Argentina."
