AmazingShared.com – Pet owners who prefer the feline rather than the canine variety of pets have their work cut out for them when it comes to the most purrfect vacation destinations for cats and their owners. Or is it humans and their feline owners? Well, regardless of who’s the boss, let’s just say you’ll both enjoy these 7 holiday spots that are well known for being cat-friendly and offering cat-themed attractions.
1. Cat Cafes, Tokyo
As noted above, Tokyo is the cat’s meow when it comes to life and fun with and for cats. You can go to Disneyland and The Hello Kitty Theme Park, but as far as your furry feline friends are concerned, the only catnip they want in Tokyo is a cat café.
2. Festival of the Cats, Ypres, Belgium
What’s cat vacation without a giant Garfield looking to eat all the lasagna in the world? If you want to see this, you need t be in Ypres, Belgium for the Festival of the Cats. The floats and the parade and festivities with toy cats being thrown into the crowd are fun enough, but the festival takes place only once in three years.
3. Key West, Florida
Key West is perhaps the best U.S. destination for cat lovers. Apart from the fact that it’s a lovely place for a beach holiday, you might also want to pencil in some time to visit Ernest Hemingway’s home and museum. The place is full of special polydactyl (six-toed) cats who are descendants of Hemingway’s Maine Coon named Snowball. If you happen to be in Key West, you might also want to spend the evening watching Dominique LeFort lead his gang of performing cats at the Sunset Celebration at Mallory Square Dock.
4. Moscow Cats Theatre
One wouldn’t associate cold and frigid Moscow with cool cats, but it’s true if you manage to catch a show at the Moscow Cats Theatre. Again, these performing cats pulling off amazing tricks and acrobatic feats will put your own pets to shame, and make you want to take back with you a dozen or so of the 100+ cats they have.
5. Kuching Cat Museum, Malaysia
Kuching is a place in Sarawak, Malaysia. Kuching means “cat” in Malay, so when you say Kuching Cat Museum, you’re actually saying Cat Cat Museum. They love cats so much, they named it twice, you think? The museum is up on a hill, with a lovely view outside and some great artifacts for cat lovers inside, including a 1000-year old mummy of an Egyptian cat.
6. Birmingham, UK
You’ll need to time your visit to Birmingham to coincide with the Supreme Cat Show. If you’re there in time, your own cats will go green with envy or hang their heads in shame, because the cats you’ll get to see at the show are truly magnificent creatures.
7. Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary, Rome
Rome was not built in a day, and so the Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary in Rome has long worked to give a safe and comfortable home for abandoned cats in the Italian capital.Their hard work has been rewarded handsomely, because the Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary is now a well-known tourist attraction. You can even sign up to be a volunteer and feed the hundreds of cats and clean up their cushy pads.
