Cats seem to be everywhere in Italy. Maybe I just notice them more since most live outside. These cats, gatti, seem to appear in every single town I visit. I must say though, that I do not recall seeing them in the larger cities of Venice, Florence, and Naples, but I am sure they are there. Because I am a cat lover and have had several cats of my own, seeing these kitties in Italy always brings a smile to my face.
Jeronimo, my cat who lived to be 19
My kitten, Bella
My kitten, Lucia
This little tuxedo cat in Poliganano a Mare was darling but his owner told us he is crazy and his name is Schizzo.
Tabby in Polignano a Mare
These well-fed cats roam the streets of the Ligurian town of Apricale.
I took a liking to this little black kitten who lived at Masseria Provenzani in Puglia.
This big kitty also lived at the masseria just outside Squinzano and near Lecce in Puglia.
These kitties and their mamma lived just below our B&B in Polignano a Mare…So cute. Are you a cat lover? I’d love to hear your feedback. Please leave a comment. Grazie mille!
