Marrakech, Morocco a.k.a. City of Cats
Strolling through the vibrant, winding streets of Marrakech, one can’t help but notice that cats are everywhere.
In the gardens…
…and in the streets.
Note: In all of Marrakech, I didn’t come across a single mouse or rat. Coincidence? I think not.

On the outskirts of Marrakech, a cat at the Berber market keeps an eye on a dome-shaped rock oven, where a whole lamb is roasting inside.

Cats of the Medina
Back in Marrakech, we take a trip to the souks where cats are hawking and haggling handmade goods for the best price.
“Want to buy a tajine? Buy my tajine!”
After a long day selling hand-woven baskets in the souk, these guys needed a cat nap.
