Squeaky the cat is a local celebrity in Gračišće, a hilltop village in Istria, Croatia, but not for the reasons you might suspect. She's originally from Bangalore, India, where she was an avid hunter. Her owners brought her to Gračišće to come and live with them. This is seen as odd and amusing by the locals, because in Croatia cats and dogs are often not allowed inside the house and there are clear limits on how affectionately pets are treated. You can read squaky's complete story here.

  8. Beautiful photographs. Interesting that Squeaky was brought from India...where the assumption is that cats and dogs would also have limits as to their importance in the social hierarchy ...will read story :)

  12. The streets are so clean. Squeaky looks fat and happy. People here don't usually have pets either. I think that's not really done in nations where people are struggling to buy food for themselves. Lovely pics!

  14. Cats don't belong in the home? Don't we build homes for cats and they let us live in them because we have thumbs?

    Calico cats are and always will be my favourite.

  34. Absolutely loved hearing about this kitty. Croatia is one of the few places our humans have visited where they met lots of kitties and have photos of them. Thanks for joining our Sunday Selfies blog hop. Hope you will return weekly. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  35. Interesting about how cat's and dogs are viewed differently in Croatia. I would love if you would share this on my linky, This is Wherever Wednesday, going up tomorrow morning. That's just the kind of interesting cultural tidbits we share there. :-)
