Cats from Felanitx {Mallorca}

These cats live 509 meters above sea level, in Felanitx, in the southeast of Mallorca. Their home is in every tourist guide, and they enjoy fantastic views of the sea and the inland. Yet they have their own little world here.

Thousands of people go to Felanitx every day - cyclists, hikers, and tourists arriving in cars or buses. They photograph the Santuari de Sant Salvador and the views. They come, they go, and they come back.

It was late in the afternoon when I met the cats of the Santuari de Sant Salvador. The buses were gone and it was too windy for cyclists to stay. I didn't see the cats at first, because they hid in the meadows and bushes below the observation deck at the Christ King monument. This was their turf. After a while, they came out to soak up the sunshine and to warm their bodies on the stones.

They were probably stray cats. Since they looked healthy and happy, I am assuming they are being fed in the nearby restaurant.

I'm currently in Cannes, France, where I'm staying in the apartment building Les pins d'Alep. This kitty greets me every evening when I come home from the film festival. Be sure to visit him too if you're here.

P.S. Have you seen this mime with cats from Cannes?

If you're ever in Fairplay, Colorado, you should go to High Paws Pet Supplies so you can meet its resident feline: Andre the Giant Cat. "Within a month of us having him, people are coming in to see him and to visit," says the owner of High Paws Pet Supplies. Since the store adopted this 25-pound cat, pet adoptions have skyrocketed.

Cat from Paris {France}

notre dame de paris

In the book Chats autour du monde by Gilles Dusouchet, I found this picture of a Siamese cat at the quay of the river Seine, enjoying a magnificent view on the Notre Dame de Paris. An example of French Gothic architecture, this Catholic cathedral is one of the biggest and most famous in the world. If you climb the 387 steps, you'll see the cathedral's famous gargoyles up close and have a panoramic view over Paris.

See more pictures of the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral here.

P.S. Have you seen the 2010 French film A Cat in Paris (Une vie de chat)? It was nominated for the Academy Award for best animated feature and is about a cat who assists a burglar in his late-night heists, taking it to the Notre-Dame de Paris and other famous places in Paris.
