Cat from Stamford {England}

Cecil the cat from The William Cecil Hotel in Stamford

Some cats are born to be couch potatoes, others become famous for running a hotel.

Meet Cecil, the feline manager of the charming country retreat The William Cecil in Stamford, England.

Cecil's main area of expertise is managing the hotel terrace and making sure guests are having the times of their lives. Contrary to many other cats, Cecil thinks dogs are cool, too, so he made The William Cecil dog-friendly.

Would you like to be Cecil's guest and enjoy a glass of wine in his company? You can find more information about The William Cecil and book your stay here.

Look Into Abandoned Cats’ Eyes: Photographer From Riga Captured Homeless Cats Around The City

Riga-based photographer Andris Andrejuks created an interesting photo project, showing the lives of street cats in Riga, Latvia. Each photo invites you to look into the eyes of fluffy friends in need of human assistance.

Photographer Andris Andrejuks says photo shooting is not his day job, but it is his passion since childhood. During his free time, he photographs nature, animals, and events. One of the most striking adventures became this photo project of the street cats of Riga.

"This particular photo shoot focuses on abandoned pets. After the summer season, cat and dog owners leave their pets behind, not thinking about their fate and the upcoming winter. For the majority of abandoned pets, it turns out to be their last month of life," says photographer Andris Andrejuks as he describes the photo shoot.

Cats from Hong Kong {China}

hong kong shop cats book

In late 2015, photographer Marcel Heijnen was walking around his new neighborhood of Sai Ying Pun in Hong Kong. Although a long-time resident of the city, he was new to this particular area, and he noticed a cat perched the counter of a small local shop. A year later, his portrait of the cat, whose name is Dau Ding, ended up as the cover to Heijnen’s new book Hong Kong Shop Cats.

Heijnen regards the small stores where the cats lounge and doze as “beautiful photogenic subjects in their own right.” They are places where, says Heijnen, “time seems to have stood still, devoid of branding and all the other modern-day retail trickery we’ve grown accustomed to”.

The Hong Kong cats are regarded as lucky, Heijnen notes in his book, and from his photos, they clearly provide companionship. In one image, a cat sits close to his owner, mirroring him, in a room of textiles. In another, a cat looks sleepily away as his owner dozes behind him.

Cat from Paris {France}

shakespeare and company cat

The two-story bookstore Shakespeare and Company, founded in 1951 by the American George Whitman, is one of the must-see places in Paris if you love books and cats.

Author Henry Miller called this famous bookstore “a wonderland of books.” The accumulation of books is huge - mainly literary classics, but we also found cat-themed books (such as this one). The bookstore also features a sofa, an old piano, typewriters, and... a world-famous resident cat.

Shakespeare and Company is currently the home of Agatha, their eight cat. Agatha is a docile, female tabby, accustomed to the comings and goings of passing writers and customers.

"Agatha used to be a stray cat. She often visited the bookstore's office and eventually made it her home," the shop assistant told Traveling Cats. "When the bookstore's former cat, Kitty, passed away in 2016, Agatha took her place as Shakespeare and Company's official bookstore cat. She's now the face of many of the bookstore's leaflets and brochures."

You can often find Agatha sleeping in her cat bed tent in the piano room on the first floor. When the crowds thin out, she comes out and picks a human lap to nap on. But don't you dare reading a book at the same time, because Agatha wants the attention all to herself.
