Cats Which Will Make You Want To Go On A Vacation Right Meow.

Parga, Greece

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!

And just like those cat photos still aren’t enough, Sharon Gourlay of Where’s Sharon told me of a place where all of the cat lovers should go, Kuching in Borneo Malaysia.

Kuching, Malaysia

If there is one place cat lovers need to head, it’s Kuching. This lovely city in Borneo Malaysia is actually called “Cat” – Kuching is Malay for cat. Here there are cat statues, cat souvenirs and a cat museum filled with cat memorabilia. It’s lots of fun and a bit of a laugh as well.

    Cats are so photogenic – no wonder they were so popular in ancient Egypt. Big and small, we have our fair share of slinky and lazy feline photos from all over the world. I can’t seem to keep my hands away from their silky fur, though sometimes sharp claws remind me that they aren’t all grateful for the attention!

      Hahahaha! Yes, the claws surprise me too most of the time. I’m not really into cats but can’t resist them when I travel. :p

    The cat from Alonissos, Greece, I bet you took her/his photo with your flash on. Cat seems angry! LOL Yet another interesting post, Noems! I envy the cats for having a great time in such beautiful places!

      Hahahaha. I don’t really remember but I’m guessing the flash was on or probably I woke him up. :p
      Thanks for dropping by Monzy! xxx

    I think I’d be a cat person if being around them didn’t make my eyes swell up to the size of small planets. I do love kittens, though, and risk the imminent allergy attack anytime I get the chance to cuddle one. 🙂

    Also, I think we have the same blog theme – ha! That’s what I get for picking a theme that 4,000 other people have already bought. 🙂

      I do have allergies as well but thankfully I’m not a cat person so I don’t suffer. Lol.
      Yes! I just visited your site now and it looks so familiar! Hahaha.

      Dog person here too but can’t resist the cuteness of cats from time to time. :p

    You are preaching to the choir sister!

    I am a cat person, mother of two, and fairy godmom to many. I know cats are snobs, independent, and bossy, but never clingy. And they have an internal radar that tells them their human/s are feeling lonely and then they turn on their Florence Nightingale attribute.

      I find them clingy when they want to. Like follow you around and rub themselves on you. Lol. I’m not really a cat person so I don’t experience the Florence Nightingale attribute from them. Maybe they hate me for taking their photos all the time? :p

    Cute pics 🙂 I have been told that Istanbul has a lot of cats everywhere…is that true??

    • Reply Pinay Flying High March 22, 2016 at 13:01

      I haven’t been there yet but from what I’ve seen, Europe has a lot of cats roaming around. :p

    What an interesting idea for a post, especially with the cats lazing around and such a beautiful background behind.

    I once photographed the most beautiful cat when I was hiking in Taiwan. The cat was gorgeous and had a hazel eye and a blue eye.
