On Mabul Island we saw many cats at our resort and in the village.

Ok I admit it, I’m a cat lover. I think I may have been one in a previous life 😉
Cats are amazing and beautiful animals. I wonder what your cat name was in that previous life.
Good question! If only memory could span different lifetimes …… Wow, there’s a thought 🙂
That would be cool, but not sure I want to know I’ve made the same mistakes repeatedly.
If we could remember making them, perhaps we wouldn’t make them again. Lol – if only!
I’d like to think I wouldn’t.
They look so sleek and healthy. Happy kitties.
I hope so.
Love the cats and the James Bond allusion in the title!
My fav is the line up on the wooden bench or table or whatever it is. They all looked related, btw. 🙂
I’m pretty sure most of them are related.
I’m no scientist, but the island is really, really small. You can walk around the entire place in less than 30 minutes.
Proud cat lover here! Love this post! ❤
My cat owns me! He did from the start when he decided to move in.
I wish I can find a cat who’s going to be my master. 😀
Careful what you wish for. Att bosses me around all day. good thing I love him.
Ahhhhhhhh choo!!! LOL
Now, now–these can’t make you sneeze. They’re too cute.
Wow, I guess so!
And I’m sure I missed quite a few.
I don’t like them as a pet, but I like watching their photos
They are beautiful creatures.
So lovely dear TBM, the love of cats begins in the early years, how nice cat and child… Thank you, love, nia
I’ve always loved cats, but couldn’t have one as a pet until I was an adult. My parents are extremely allergic, but I’m not.
Beautiful pictures! Cats are so adorable – so many different colours, so much cuteness!
Thanks for sharing.
I took so many pictures of cats in Morocco.
Are they mostly feral in Morocco as well? I love seeing them, but it does break my heart. I donated money on this island to a fund to help support that animals. I’m pretty much a sucker. You ask for money for animals and kids and I can’t refuse.
Yes, feral as well. In smaller cities it’s not that bad but Marrakech was awful!!!
So sad. We also saw so many dogs wandering along the highways. Always made my heart stop seeing them so close to the roads.
I know. So sad.
It’s lovely to see them all looking so well and healthy 🙂
I was surprised by that, but it’s a fishing village so maybe they get lots of scraps.
BTW, have you seen this?
Very clever, but I hope photoshop was used 🙂
So do I…
When we went to Dubrovnik there were lots of cats – all living wild but seemingly in perfectly good health! They were particularly interested in the people eating outside restaurants – hoping for pieces of fish and actually really not at all timid. Would come and sit on the chair next to you!
These would sit in your lap as well. And they know how to con you out of food. I’m a sucker.
The cats look surprisingly clean and healthy. Are they pets or ferile? Not a cat fan myself, but I don’t necessarily hate them.
They are used to people being around, but I don’t think they are pets. They live there and coexist. There’s a group that do their best to take care of them.
your cat report made my day! my favorite: your img 1946 – the nap gang …
The napping cats had the right idea–it was a hot day.
I love kitties and I have enjoyed your pictures of these cats that appear to be healthy and fed. I love seeing the little girl petting the gray and white. Napping Cat Bench is funny!
I was surprised by how healthy they looked. that little girl was thrilled to be surrounded by kitties.
That’s a lot of cats! I remember coming across a lot of seemingly stray cats when I was in Greece.
It was surprising to see so many. Will keep an eye out when I make it to Greece.
loved the photos. i am a cat person as well. my daughter just moved back from Melbourne, cat in tow. i swear he knew where he was going – 17 hours on a plane and he was calm as a cucumber and ready to roll.
Glad to hear he arrived safe and sound. I was nervous flying with my boys, but they made it. First thing Att did was climb up the fireplace. That’s blocked off permanently now.
