I saw a lot of cats while traveling through Israel . I thought this week I’d share a few of the pictures I took. (There were very few dogs I met or could take pictures of. Sorry dog lovers.)
Photo 1: Cat at the Church of the Primacy of St. Peter, near the Sea of Galilee.
Photo 2: Cat in the Golan Heights.
Photo 3: Kitten in the courtyard outside the Church of St. Anne, Jerusalem.
Photo 4 (my favorite): Cat hanging out in the plaza next to the Western Wall in Jerusalem. As far as this cat is concerned, the Western Wall belongs to cats.
Photo 5: Cat walking along the paths on top of the Damascus Gate, Jerusalem. From the ramparts of this gate the Old City looked so peaceful … but on the ground there was so much heartbreak for everyone who lives there. (Heard earlier today about the deaths at this gate :() … It’s tricky to see the cat in this photo due to its fur blending in with the stones so well.
