Cats from Tangier {Morocco}

When you visit Morocco, especially Moroccan Medinas (cities downtown), you notice cats in every street corner. In some cities like Chefchaouen, Tangier and Marrakech, cats are really everywhere and part of Moroccan streets and everyday life. You see them sleeping, playing, eating and sunbathing in unusual places.

Moroccan cats photography has become one of my favorite kinds of photography. These cats are so special, charming and have their own character. I have pictures of cats I took years ago, and I can still remember when, where and how the picture was taken.

Fixing cats is not very common in Morocco, hence their high number. Although some of them have owners, the majority are wild cats and live on the streets. That's why I always travel with cat food. If you are visiting Morocco, take with you a small bag of croquettes and you'll enjoy feeding the poor cats. They can look happy, but despite locals and associations efforts, many of them are hungry and need help.

  6. We have been in Morocco a few times in different places and also found them in the hotels or at least near them. We always fed them. It's so sad to see them and get kicked sometimes by people, or hunted by streetdogs😿 Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead🐾😽💞

  11. So sweet and yet sad. No one wants to think of hungry unloved kitties. I will be traveling to Morroco in 2020. I will be bringing my kitty. We will plan on sharing our food!
