There are cats everywhere in Morocco. They are everywhere: in the markets, in the restaurants, cafe, shops, entryways of mosques waiting and begging for a scrap. They are like community cats who wander anywhere, well-fed but not directly taken care as a “pet”. They are considered taboo in Islam because they are said to be unclean.
I have six cats in our house back in the Philippines. Seeing stray cats in Morocco made me sad. I am a cat person so every time I saw cats in the streets of Morocco, I always fed them and how I wish I could bring all of them back home.
Here are some photos of cats that I took during our recent trip in Morocco.
