Pictures of Cats of the World Outside North America

By

Cats were domesticated in other parts of the world long before they reached the U.S. and Canada. We have countries near and far to thank for the origin of popular cat breeds, such as the Manx, Siamese, Turkish Van, and Persian. At the same time, domestic cats, aka mixed-breed cats, are held in high esteem, both feline family members, and stray street cats, in most countries.

Though cats in different countries have different life styles, in part because of different climates, the one thing most cats of the world all have in common is that they universally love - and are loved by their humans. We honor cats of the world here, to embrace both their differences and their similarities.

Cat lovers who live outside North America were encouraged to share their cats' stories in a Cats of the World Show and Tell feature. This picture gallery shows their full-sized pictures and brief synopses of their stories.
