Meet the cat that guards the pink city of Petra, Jordan

My friends from the travel blog Far Away at Home just got back from a trip to Jordan and sent me these pictures of the cat that guards the entrance to the canyon nearby Petra's historical site.

Famous for its rock-cut architecture and secret chambers, Petra is on many a traveler's bucket list. Several feral cats are lucky to call this World Heritage location their permanent home. The cat in these pictures is the most photographed of all. He truly is the guardian of the pink city.

“This cat loved to cuddle,” says Werner Gladines from Far Away at Home. “Until a dog came by. You'll notice in the last pictures that he looks very alert.”

Have you visited the historical site of Petra, Jordan? Did you see the feral cats?

  1. Oh this place is on my bucket list for sure. This pussy cat looks so friendly that i would want to take him home. What's wrong around his face? Is it battle damage or just dark hair? I can see his intense look and dislike for the dog off camera
