The Adventures of Travel Cat: Durban, South Africa

May 10, 2012 at 11:48 AM | by | ()

Kitty cats. They rule the internet and, whether we realize it or not, pretty much the world too. Ever noticed how cats sometimes stake out the coolest spots in a city? This new feature—Travel Cat—focuses on exactly that. Submit a photo to be featured by tweeting or Instagramming it to us (details below).

Travel Cat spotted in: Durban, South Africa.

This week's Travel Cat comes from Maryke VanBeuzekom, who spotted Travel Cat during the World Cup in 2010. You can check out the full photo album on Maryke's Facebook here, and here's a little of the backstory:

We met some lovely kitties when we traveled to South Africa in 2010 for the World Cup. In Durban, we stayed at an amazing B&B on the bluff, called the Netcoral Guest House. The resident kitties were named Kiss Kat and Angus. Kiss Kat (the calico) enjoyed sunning himself under the bench in the backyard and on the steps leading down to the beach. Angus greeted us in the driveway when we arrived and made us feel instantly at home. They were both super friendly and used to getting attention from all of the visitors passing through. We loved Durban and our next visit, we'll be making a point to stay at the Netcoral again.

How to submit your own Travel Cat photo to be featured:
· Have a pic of a cute cat in an interesting world location.
· Tweet it to us @Jaunted with a few words on where you took the snap.
· OR Instagram it to us by posting the pic and including us (@Jaunted) and #TravelCat in the description
· Or you can always just email us the old-fashioned way.

If your kitty makes the cut, we'll feature it on Travel Cat (every Wednesday!) and link to your Twitter/Instagram/Facebook—whatever social network you get down with the most.
