Moggieday, Moggieday, so good to me, and with apologies to the Moggies and Papas, today is the day the world’s cats are feline good.
And we have animal activist Coleen Paige to thank for pushing to have a national day for cats in 2005.
Now, we’ve all been there on our travels when we’ve had kitties cuddle up to our legs and made us feel welcome.
So on this, National Cat Day, indulge us while we share some puss pics from our travels.
Istanbul: And our feline friends in Istanbul are the type of learned bunch TS Eliot would take to.
As we found out when we went shopping in the most historic and enchanting row of stores and stalls in this magical city on the Bosphorus.
Where you’ll find moggies sprawled out over books on the counter… cat lit if you like.
Tenerife: And when you need someone to show you the way then you could do worse than follow the cats.
Because they know their way around, of course.
Rome: Moggie mia… you’ll spot your gatti Italiani because of their swagger.
I guess that’s why they call Rome the Eternal Kitty.
Jordan: Now we all know about the camel, the ‘ship of the desert’.
But our furry low-maintenance feline friends we found on our G Adventures adventure are adaptable to any terrain.
And they make a better sleeping companion under the stars in the Wadi Rum.
Barbados: And we all know that the cat rules the roost, or at least that’s how it is here where the mother-in-law’s moggie Mishka is on holiday.
And it is certainly the case in St Nicholas Abbey, ancestral home of the Cumberbatches (yes those Cumberbatches).
Where I had to give way on my Bajan Scottish odyssey because the top cat on the island is this furry fella.
