Cats are everywhere.
And I don’t mean just the Internet. If you spend even a little time outside, you’re bound to come across a cat. Whether the kitty is someone else’s or just a wild cat is another story but they are sometimes found in the most weirdest places. That is probably why some people have taken the hobby of cat spotting in their leisurely time. It is no different than bird spotting except you might get a few scratches out of the whole ordeal.
If this sounds like something you would like to do, there is nothing stopping you! Just go out, travel, and always keep a lookout for cats in the wild. You will happen upon a cat when you least expect it. And don’t forget to look up as sometimes cats can be found on higher ledges or someone’s window peering out. All in all, it is a fun time and much safer than playing Pokemon Go. And you can see what some of the people found on their travels by scrolling below.
Beware as these floofs might make your heart flutter.
#1 Is that a really small village or a really big cat?
Look at the size of this beauty. Spotted at Southsea model village.
#2 When you are patiently waiting for your food.
A friends spot from his local market. Polite bois.

Greek farm cat raced up to greet me and demanded immediate scritches. LOUDEST PURR EVER! Gah! I love her SOOOO much.

I know this is a cat group but can anyone identify this rare flower that my dad found!?
#6 This floof is staring daggers at every passerby.
Spotted this hairy fluffer on my walk to work in Edinburgh. Did not want any pats.

Spotted this poser up the road from my boyfriend’s house.

Spotted this extra thiccc calico sleeping by Hallstatt Lake.
#11 This is one extra springy kitty.

#12 She only wants more head scritches.
This gorgeous little cutiepie came out for pats when I walked past on my way home from the train station. Super friendly, just like her mother who I’ve met and posted here before.
#13 ‘You dare look at me hooman!’
Spotted this big man on the streets of Haarlem. Looks: angery. Was: very soft and kind. He got scared by a dog and revealed his interesting (nakey) haircut.
#14 When you drink too much.
#15 I wonder what this kitty has seen.
Preach to us your wisdom with your majestic mane, oh great bearded Mufasa.
While approaching a beautiful kitty out in your journey sounds like a fun time, you should always be careful. Because not every cat is as calm as gentle as they seem. And some will feel threatened when you approach them. So walk towards them slowly and with an open palm so they know you are not going to hurt them. And if they back away, don’t try to catch them as they might scratch you to get out of your grip.
#16 I am amazed by the fluffiness of this cat.
Found this gorgeous cat during my trip to Croatia. I was impressed by the colour of its eyes and its body completely covered by the color changing fur.
#17 ‘Can you give me belly rubs?’
#18 He is thankful to the hoomans saving his life.
This boy was spotted and rescued from a sand bar (in the middle of the lake) on a kayak trip in Flint, Michigan. He rode on my kayak for an hour and a half.
#19 ‘I have leaf art if you have the coin.’
Saw this little fella selling his ‘leaf art’ in Portland’s Pearl District.
#20 ‘You shall not pass!’
Is this a cat or a Pokemon that hissed at me in some random street of Elwood (Melbourne, Australia) this morning?!
#21 A big blep to make your day.
#22 ‘Where do you think you are going, hooman?’
Extra floofy neighbourhood cat often greets me on my arrival home from work. In this case jumping on my windscreen as soon as my car was parked.
Loves a good pat/head butt. Attempts to enter house. Very persistent. Very floofy. Very grumpy cat face like.
#23 She looks like two cats combined into one.
This pretty flurf was sitting in someone’s garden, and was most displeased to be disturbed for photos. Offers of fuss were not accepted, and not a single meow was offered.
She was still there when I went back, and honoured me with a nose boop!
#24 ‘Can you please get me out?’ – A random cat in a predicament.
I came down this morning to pick up my friend and at some time a random cat was stuck half way out the window trying to get in.
(Apparently he only comes/visit for her food.) It was very unexpected but we helped and ate a lot!!
#25 This is why I want a catzilla movie.
Colossal Cat at Ephesus in Turkey. My cousin and I ditched our tour guide and ran ahead to the library for photos when the sun broke through and I was rewarded with this charming young man.
I’m pretty sure this is the best photo I will ever take in my life.
#26 ‘I am looking for headpats.’
#27 This is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen.
We’re on a trip through Norway and found this little thing on one of the most beautiful places ever. She was on a leash and hunting some mice (so I let her do her work instead of petting her).
#28 The blue scarf was made for the kitty.
#29 ‘If you are not going to buy anything, Get out.’
Blue eyed shopkeeper spotted on Miyajima, an island south of Hiroshima. Business probably going well judging from body shape and haughty attitude.
#30 I might be having a heart attack from cuteness overload.
Favourite kitty on my street. i normally only see her inside a window. Such an elusive wonder.
Such a beautiful gooushface floof! I had to capture when i had the chance. (rides past, spies floof, runs inside my place, grabs zoom, runs back) NO PATS, NO CHANCE!!
