Conwy Castle and Cat

Conwy Castle and Cat

This instalment in the Cats of the World-series is from Northern Wales, from Conwy, home of the fortified Conwy Castle – one of King Edward’s four imposing (and very cool) castles here in Gwynedd.

… and Conwy Cat

This little tiger reminded me of Henry VIII – he strolled lazily around and allowed us to play with him.

I’m going to add a non-cat photo here as well, let’s call it cat food. I don’t much care for sea gulls, but they can be rather photogenic against a bright blue sky. This one perched on one of the towers of Conwy Castle.

Like cats? Then you might enjoy these Kuwaiti Cats.

    Conwy Cat doesn’t look too friendly…

    That cat looks like he owns the place. And I’ve never thought about it, but pigeons really are photogenic.

    I just loved North Wales. I stayed in Llaundudno and toured five castles in three days. One of them was in Conwy, I remember. I could absolutely see myself returning to Wales.

      @Sabina – It really is a beautiful and underrated place. After visitiing Wales, my oldest daughter liked it so much, she decided to do her MA there. She’s just finishing these days.

    I know that cat! I visit Conwy several times a year, and I’m sure that cat is Bobby! He scratched me a few years ago when I tried to stroke him. He’s not a nice cat haha

      Wow! The world is really small, isn’t it… Bobby, eh? He was in a good mood when we met him :)
      We really liked Conwy, btw.
