Cuba is in love with its cats.

One thing you’ll notice if you travel to Cuba is that Cubans like cats. Cats freely roam the streets throughout the day and night, seemingly without much fear that dogs or humans are a serious threat. Apparently, that hasn’t always been true, but today you’re likely to encounter cats that will even cuddle up to you for attention. Here are a few that I found while I was there.
