Cats from Capileira {Spain}

capileira hiking trail

The Lonely Planet Andalucia Travel Guide describes Capileira as “a different kind of white village, clinging to a steep-sided valley in Las Alpujarras where crafts are hewn and hikers strike out for the Sierra Nevada.” 

The balmy climate in this mountainous region turns the grass dry. Lizards skitter between boulders and cairns. A clowder of newborn kittens seeks refuge in the shadows. 

Tourists follow the famous Capileira hiking trail to enjoy the best views of the mountains and villages of the Sierra Nevada. No wonder Capileira is considered one of the world's great hiking destinations. 

Life is slow here in Capileira. Life is good.

Cat from Paris {France}

louvre paris france

Kris Dewitte is one of Belgium's most famous photographers. He worked as a set photographer on many international films (such as Alleluia and Lost River) but is mainly known for his portraits of such Hollywood celebrities as Tilda Swinton and Zoë Lund. 

In his spare time, however, Kris Dewitte loves to photograph the real stars of this world: cats. His latest subject was this kitty near the Louvre in Paris, France.

Cat from Reigny {France}

reigny abbey

Travel bloggers Myriam Thys and Werner Gladines from the website Far Away at Home visited the Abbey of Reigny in Burgundy, France, and found this kitty roaming the premises. 

Guests of this Cistercian abbey turned hotel rave about the beautiful historic interiors and the comprehensive breakfast in either the garden or the 18th-century lounge with fireplace.

 Just outside of Reigny are some of the greatest vineyards in the world (where the famous Chablis wines are made). The hotel/abbey is only a one-minute walk away from the beach.

Don't you just want to sit by that pool with a good book, an iced coffee, and the resident cat to keep you company?

The place? 

The tropical boutique Simonton Court Historic Inn in the heart of Old Town Key West in Florida

The hotel is just steps away from the world-famous historic attractions of Key West, including the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum (which is the home of 45 cats).

Cat from Brussels {Belgium}

peck 47

This cat follows his owner everywhere throughout Brussels. Here, he was visiting the brunch cafe Peck 47. I often go here for lunch (their wholegrain sandwich with sweet potato and cilantro is the best) or to work on a book while sipping on one of their homemade lemonades. You should go, too, if you're ever near La Grande Place. Who knows, this kitty might be visiting again.
