The Nga Phe Kyaung monastery in Myanmar is many a cat lover's dream. Built on stilts on Inle Lake, the place is known as Jumping Cat Monastery because  the monks have trained the local cats to jump through small loops and hold performances. The acrobatic cats are named after Hollywood stars such as Demi Moore, Leonardo Di Caprio and Marilyn Monroe.

  9. Ca c'est ... étrange.
    Si ça n'était pas des moines bouddhistes je dirais quelle horreur. Les chats... ne sont pas des chiens.
    Mais les bouddhistes sont respectueux de la vie et en recherche de non souffrance.
    Ca donne d'étonnantes photos.
    Bonne soirée

  23. J'ai été surprise de voir des moines dresser des chats, mais les photos sont étonnantes ! Les chats ne sauteraient pas s'ils ne le voulaient pas ;) Le livre tiré du magazine Géo est superbe, j'ai eu l'occasion de le feuilleter.

  25. Wow! They must have a way with cats that I don't. If I tried to train mine to do that, they'd stare at me like I'd lost it.
