The cats of Kotor

Kotor is a quaint seaside town in Montenegro that’s full of cats. We walked up to the top of the fortress and were greeted by a cat just hanging out. We explored the Old town and saw a cat on every corner. There is even a whole museum, the cat museum, dedicated to these furry creatures and its proceeds are used to feed and take care of Kotor’s cats. Wherever we turned, there was a cat.

The Old Town is also full of souvenir shops that are offering heaps of knick-knacks featuring cats. After roaming Kotor’s streets I was starting to wonder how the local cat population grew to what it is today. Upon doing a little research online I stumbled upon this blog post explaining that Kotor was, for centuries, a busy trading point and along with people and goods from all over the world, came cats. Today, Kotor has a huge cat population, they are simply everywhere and there is no hiding from them.

While roaming through Kotor I couldn’t resist and snapped a whole bunch of photos of its cats.

I visited Kotor during the winter and must say that I would not go there again during the colder months. It’s a ghost town. However, if you happen to be around in the spring, summer or early fall and are a lover of cats then Kotor is definitely worth a visit.
