I’m not a cat person, in fact I absolutely hate cats because I find them so clingy, snobs and bossy at the same time. Whenever I travel though, I see them everywhere and I can’t help myself but be hypnotized by them. I wonder how lucky they are to be lazing around in beautiful places and have such amazing sceneries in front of them as they do it. I become somewhat drawn to them, just to look at their lazy eyes until it closes for a nap. And because I’m not a cat person, I’d bug them by taking hundreds of photos – sometimes with beautiful backgrounds and sometimes with flash so they’d wake up. Afterwards, I’d pet them a little bit to show them how sorry I am.
I’m not the only one drawn to cats I thought, it can’t be possible that I’m the only one who somehow gets hypnotized by them. I asked several wonderful bloggers to send me cat photos during one of their travels and after about 6 hours, my inbox had about 40 cat photos in it. I enjoyed sifting through it even I have to admit that they’re a bunch of cuties! Unfortunately, I can’t publish all of them as I’m afraid I’d be a cat lady myself. So I only chose those which will trigger some sort of a wanderlust in you.
Here are the cats which will make you want to go on a vacation right about meow!
