This pampered cat lives near the Church of the Black Madonna in Regla Havana.

The one thing I have learned over the years of writing this blog is that if the subject is cats, it will always get a big audience. I understand. I squander too much time watching adorable cat videos, and when I travel, I miss my cat and my bed and–even more–my cat IN my bed. In March my husband and I spent ten days in Cuba with five other photographers. While the others were getting just the right light on one beautiful scene after another, I wandered around taking photos of cats.

This kitty looks suspiciously like the cat below.
Although the first cat certainly got the better markings.
As with all city cats, this fixture at a Havana market has figured out how to get a good meal.
This man made sure his feline friend didn’t go away hungry.
While this cat solved his hunger problem by living in the kitchen.
