Cat from Valletta {Malta} - Traveling Cats - Travel Pictures of Cats

Cat from Valletta {Malta}

The Maltese islands arouse thoughts of sun, sea, and beaches. Whilst enjoying the archipelago’s rich offerings in history, culture, and gastronomy, you cannot help but notice the feline members of the local population. 

You will find strays in most corners of the world. The only difference is in Malta and Gozo, the cats are not scraggy and musty. The opposite is true. They are well-fed and in peak condition, with glossy fur and bright eyes. This is thanks to a group of devoted carers who have taken upon themselves to be the guardians of the thousands of stray cats that inhabit the islands

The book Islands of Cats: The Humble Stray Cat Carers of the Maltese Islands by Alexander G. Johnson (author) and Gabriele Ruttloff-Bauer (photographer) is a collection of 232 photographs that capture the cat colonies and their carers in genuine, unfeigned situations. The book also features interesting facts about the localities and the work of the stray cat carers.
