51. I found this beautiful cat lying on an ancient column at the archaeological site of Delphi in Greece. The sanctuary of Delphi which had the most famous oracle of ancient Greece, was regarded as the center of the world.

52. Michu was a sweet cat that sailed across Panama and Colombia.  He kept company to the crew and to the guests while sailing across San Blas.  It was a hell of a trip, and I was very sea sick.  The first day of the sail, he mostly hid under the bridge.  He must have been so sick, poor kitty!

53. I was in Cotacachi, Ecuador, and it had just stopped raining.  I was walking back to the bus stop, and I spotted this lovely lady who was just looking outside her door, curiously.  Her cat was doing the very same.  She smiled at me, and I asked her if I could take a picture.  She did not mind and smiled at the camera for me.  I then went to pet the cat, but he decided he was too busy for me.

54. The Catboat (De Poezenboot) is located on Singel Canal street in Amsterdam.  Known as the “pussy boat,” this vessel shelters homeless cats.  When it is not open for boarding, you can view the cats from outside.

56. This sweet little feline is one a many feral cats who live amongst the ruins Ephesus, Turkey. They are all quite friendly and “tame,” letting anyone give a scratch behind the ear or to an exposed fluffy belly. Ephesus is their home and who knows! — they may just be the descendants of 6,000-year-old cats who also called Ephesus home.

58. My partner and I were in York, England, on the grounds of the cathedral.  We had stopped to check our guidebook and rest on the bench.  This big cat marched up, jumped up on the bench between the two of us, and demanded a pet.  Everyone enjoyed it.

71. This calico cat has the run of The Classy Flea antiques shop in Jamestown, California.  You’d think she’d choose to nap in a nice soft chair instead of a display of prickly pins.

72. We saw these two cats when exploring the back streets of Ankara, Turkey.  The entire scene begged to be captured, with the crumbling painted walls and the uneven steps. The cats seemed particularly disinterested in us.

78. I​ met this beautiful cat at a quiet canal-side​​ museum in Amsterdam called Museum van ​Loon​. I was delighted to ​find a sign warning​ visitors​ not to let the cat inside the museum before​ this friendly cat charmed me. ​ This beauty belongs to one of the neighbors, however it loves to spend its time prowling​ the private garden, cuddling with visitors, ​and​ trying to break into the museum. What a place to call home!

82. This desert cat lives in the sumptuous indoor/outdoor restaurant at the Captain’s Camp in Wadi Rum, Jordan.  I loved dining out in Jordan, because all the best restaurants have several resident cats.  The servers gently shoo them, but diners slip tidbits to the cats of Jordan.
