I was inspired to do this post by Brenna who has done a few photo series of all the animals she has met along her travels. Over the past few months I have been meeting cats. Lots and lots of cats! Some of them are clever strays who hang around restaurants where they are sure to be well fed, others spend their days lounging in cat cafes, and then you have the hostel pets who love getting attention from the passing traveller.
Here’s a quick look at my time in Asia through…cats:

And another furry little friend who we often saw during breakfast while we were staying at the Impiana Resort in Phuket, Thailand. With smoked salmon on the menu, this cat sure knew where to get the best meals.
