"The 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 over the sea and the inland. Yet they have their own little world here.
Thousands of people come here 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, 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 strays. Since they looked healthy and happy, I am assuming they are being fed in the nearby restaurant."
