26-cat gallery-Italy-Siena-c Annette White-600pix-sml

26.  This pretty kitty was seen strolling through the Montestigliano estate in the countryside near Siena, Italy.  He could be spotted leisurely walking through the many Tuscan villas on the land, stopping only for food or a scratch on the head. What a life!"

27-cat gallery-Chile-Valparaiso-c Laura Paquet

27.  I took this photo of my husband Paul with one of the many, many cats in Valparaiso, Chile. Most stores there seem to have a cat or two--probably to keep the rodent population in check. This one was particularly friendly.

39-cat gallery-Croatia-Dubrovnik-c Susan Farlow-141kb

39.  Cats just want to have fun! Such as this kitty in Dubrovnik, Croatia, who enjoyed prancing atop the famous walls of the city's Old Town. The sweet cat was quite willing, though, to stop and let my husband administer a few rubs and some kind words.  Photographed by Susan Farlow

40-cat gallery-Italy-Cinque Terre-c2014 Debbie Murray-600pix

40.  Kitty waiting for morning latte in Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy.

41-cat gallery-Italy-Civita di Bagnoregio-c2014 Debbie Murray-600pix

41.  Debbie Murray says:  When we showed up at Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy, we searched for lunch. This quaint place had pizza, fresh cheeses, and sausage. It was all molto bene. While my hubby bought the lunch, the cats gathered around me. (I guess they knew...) We shared lunch and they followed me around town. I felt at home!

42-cat gallery-Turkey-Istanbul-with policeman-c Cacinda Maloney

42.  It wasn’t until I got home and started looking thru my photographs that I realized I had so many shots of cats.  Not dogs, but cats.  You know how when you are in Mexico, you always see stray dogs?  Well, not here, here in Istanbul, Turkey, there are stray cats.
See her photo gallery of Istanbul cats.

43-cat gallery-Turkey-Ephesusmen's restroom-c Noel Morata-600pix

43.  This image was captured in the Men's bathroom at Ephesus in Turkey and apparently this is their favorite sleeping hole by the toilets.  I thought this was a pretty cool shot even though there were a lot of stray cats all over the ancient site.

Even though this site is rife with ads, it is fun to browse through even more cats in sinks.

44-cat gallery-Tunisia-Tunis-cShara Johnson-600pix

44.  This contented kitty was sitting on a doorstep inside the medina in Tunis, Tunisia, clearly well-positioned to see an approach from any angle.  Whether he took his prominent post there in order to guard the doors or in hopes of being petted by passersby, I don't know!

45-cat gallery-Morocco-Essaouira-Michele-600pix

45.  If you love cats, Essaouira, Morocco  is the place to go.  They are everywhere, loved and fed by locals and tourists alike.  They can be seen sleeping in many places around town, including the many shops selling beautiful handcrafts.

46-cat gallery-Morocco-Marrakesh-cLeyla-Women on the Road-600pix

46.  The alleys of the Marrakesh medina are dark and crowded and it's not difficult to imagine a mouse - or God forbid something larger - scurrying underfoot.  The cat, nicknamed MarraKat, looks well-fed and yes, his owners do feed him every day.  That probably doesn't stop him from nibbling a stray treat or two.  The alleys of Marrakesh are full of cats, waiting for scraps from nearby eateries or chasing after things smaller than themselves.  Each day they seem to stand on the same spot, like a gendarme guarding his corner and keeping trespassers away.

47-cat gallery-England-Amberley Castlec Carole Terwilliger Meyers-scan-600pix

47.  This is the castle cat at Amberley Castle in England.  What a life!

48-cat gallery-Italy-Bolsena-c Nat Harris-600pix

48.  We spent most of the day in Bolsena, Italy, when we walked into the medieval part there were no people out at all.  Then we saw this cat, at first he was crouched down in a doorway, looking a little timid, we called him and he came running to us.

49-cat gallery-Turkey-Istanbul-Grand Bazar-c Claudia Tavani-600pix

49.  I admit I am a cat lover. I can spot cats from a distance, in random places. This cat was happily sitting in the window of a shop near the Grand Bazar in Istanbul (Turkey).  He was seriously relaxed, and why would he not be, he even had a number of pillows all to himself!

50-cat gallery-U.S.-Chattanooga-Tennessee-Half Moon Cabin-c Shraddha Gupta-600pix

50.  This adorable little creature is the resident cat of a perfect English cabin located in Chattanooga, Tennessee, known as the Half Moon Cabin.  As she guards the property throughout the day, and soaks in the sun in the mornings, this long weekend rental cabin is serenely situated amid the popular Appalachian Mountains that surround the city.  Along with the creeks and the little fishing lakes nearby, many travelers opt for a vacation in this area, mostly to spend a quiet time in the wilderness or to hike and visit the waterfalls around.
