Cats from Rio de Janeiro {Brazil}

Connecting Lapa with the higher situated Santa Teresa, the Escadaria Selarón (also called Selarón Steps or Selarón Stairs in English) is one of the most photographed places in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The artist Jorge Selarón started covering the steps in 1990 with colorful tiles he found in the trash. Over time, they became a tourist attraction. Seen from the top, the Escadaria Selarón looks like an ordinary, gritty staircase; it's only as you climb the stairs that the view becomes exciting and colorful. Cats can often be found on and near the Selarón Steps, making them even more scenic.

If you're interested in both cats and Brazil, you may also want to check out Purrball meets Burrball in Brazil.  In this cute children's book, Purrball the cat loses his little owner, Darryl, during an earthquake in Brazil. He meets a sloth named Burrball who will help him reunite with the little boy. Anne Zoet's drawings of the cat and sloth are adorable. All children between ages three to nine will love this book.

  18. It's pretty amazing he decorated those with things he found in the trash. That takes imagination and creativity as well as skill. Those cats seem to enjoy it at least.

  22. We saw these amazing steps when we watched the Olympics, and though our Dad has been to Rio, he was quite amazed that he hadn't seen them when he was there. And we did not know the story behind them. Every beautiful site is only made more beautiful by the presence of cats!
