"When it comes to white sand, wild surf and wide-open skies, nowhere in Britain can compare to Devon and Cornwall," states Lonely Planet Devon & Cornwall (Travel Guide).

In fact, Cornwall has been the number one UK Holiday Destination for the eight consecutive year in the British Travel Awards thanks to its breathtaking seaside vistas, cliff-top walks, and stunning medieval castle. Or is it because so many cats take a leisurely walk along the cobbled streets of Cornwall?

"Akihabara, Tokyo. This headquarters of manga and animation houses some discreet shrines and temples. Tucked away between the railway road, a canal, and a row of buildings, the Yamagimori sanctuary is a small haven of peace where visitors pray and enjoy their lunch break on a bench while caressing the two old cats that sleep there."

Najac is exactly how you would imagine a picturesque French village. Built along a ridge above a bend of the Aveyron river, Najac has many little shops and restaurants and is dominated by a 13th century fortress castle.

The village is really small (less than 1,000 inhabitants). Yet it has a local celebrity: a castle cat. ”I photographed the castle cat on the old road towards the 13th century castle ruins,” says Werner Gladines from the Belgian travel blog Dichtbij en Ver Weg. “The cat was already on the wall when we were walking towards the castle, and two hours later it was still there. She posed like a real diva.”

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.
