That beautiful cat

This handsome fellow lives at the boatyard near the Ponte dei Muti in Cannaregio. He was so soft to touch!

  1. Venice, my favorite city, and a cat that looks like mine. Heaven! What more could I ask for?


  2. What a lovely cat. Does he live in the CATacombs ? πŸ˜‰ xox


  3. Isn’t he a lovely cat, Danielle! I was so pleased that he let me pat him.


  4. C’est toujours avec un immense plaisir que je rencontre un des chats de l’ex-squero dei Muti, quand j’ai beaucoup de chance je vois les trois.
    Celui ci est toujours très sympatique.
    Merci et Γ  bientΓ΄t

    Hello Yvonne,
    I love your pictures of Venice – especially these cat pictures. Beautiful creatures!
    I have been so happy to read your posts again.
    Enjoy your time in Venezia!
    Kind regards,


  6. Ah, the lovely Minx….looking for all the world like she was placed on that doilie on purpose.
    Definitely get cat- sick when I go away. Even a trip to San Lorenzo helps a bit. Although they are wary and won’t let you touch them. I do find cats come out more on a sunny day. Or at least a warmer day.


    • Michelle, she sort of nudged various little rocks aside and nestled in there. Why bother buying cat beds when they find their own spot?


      • Yes, cat beds do tend to be a waste of money….although I had a couple of them for a while that did get used because they were in the window. But since I no longer have a sunny window she prefers the pillow placed on the trunk at the end of my bed….for now…who knows where it will be next week? Or even tomorrow.

    We know exactly what you mean by “catsickness” – that’s what leads us home, isn’t it? She looks lovely, and the pose reminds us of one of ours!

    All cats are beautiful, in our opinion, and when we’re away from home and our own, we’re always on the look-out for a local cat to admire. Sadly, the very first time we went to Venice …. it took us FOUR days to find one! By then we were really in a bad way. Since then we’ve got better at seeking them out there. That one is a real beauty, though. thanks


  9. There’s another bold little fellow not far from where I’m staying. He wanders the neighbourhood, is well know and is admitted to several homes. I’ll post photos of that one later.


  10. I think I have seen that gorgeous creature in some of the E-Venise videos. I’ll have to wander over there and look for him/her when I’m there next. On a sunny day of course. There seem to be more cats out with the sun.

    Beautiful! What cute little legs….


  12. Hi Yvonne! That’s my neighbour! It always comes to see me when I cross the bridge and I can pet it. There are two other cats who live there.
    What’s up with the bridge?
    Have a nice day!

    What a handsome looking cat! A magnificent looking specimen, and he let you pat him 😊


  14. Dear Yvonne,
    Wow, now that’s a beautiful cat – he looks pretty well fed so I guess he’s not one of those “stray” ones?

    The sun came out yesterday afternoon – it disappeared for two weeks – so was a very welcome visitor!
    Have a lovely weekend
    Ciao from Vienna
