All you're going to witness at this no-kill shelter in Arlington is a huge gathering of adorable house cats with some of them begrudgingly dressed to compete for titles such as Loudest Purr, Longest Whiskers, Biggest Feet, Most Talkative, and Most Obnoxious (recognize your moggy in there?). Don't stay content with going online to check photo competition entrants – be a part of this event, as it is best enjoyed up close and in 'purr-son.'


Hemingway’s Cats, Key West, USA

Hemingway’s Cats, Key West, USA Make the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum your stop to get up close and personal with "love sponges," as they were called by the author Ernest Hemingway.

Moggie Mecca, Egypt

Today, you can see cats roaming the hectic Cairo streets, but the real fun is in checking out cat statues, tomb paintings, and souvenirs. After all the exploration, you may want to adopt a cat. Contact the Egyptian Mau Rescue Organization and they will arrange adoptions of the majestic moggies.
