Cat from Alexandria {Egypt}

This majestic beast was spotted in AlexandriaEgypt, in front of the Citadel of Qaitbay, a 15th-century fortress that was once an important defensive stronghold for Egypt. It has been restored and provides stunning views of the sea and the city. There are also several small market stalls lining the street near the entrance.

"We spotted quite a few feral kitties around the Citadel of Qaitbay, but this one might have been my favorite," says Traveling Cats reader Charlene Warren. "We were told the cats there steal fish right off the boats of the fishermen. I'm positive he was a white bearded sea captain in a former life."

  3. Cats don't steal, but just take what is their due!

  4. The three Kingdoms of Ancient Egypt started around 3100 BCE and ended around 1100 BCE. During that time, cultural traits such as architecture, art, religion and philosophy thrived and Egypt became the greatest civilisation on earth. However in-between these golden eras were intermediate periods with no centralised Egyptian government that were comparable to the Medieval Dark Ages of Europe. egyptian symbols
