Kitty spotting in the desert is never easy. Smart desert kitties find somewhere cool to hide out during the day and sneak around stalking prey during the cooler nights. Here at the Eastern Mangroves Marina, somebody was thoughtful enough to put out a pile of delicious kibble for the local kitties.
Travel Kitty Spotting in Abu Dhabi East Mangroves Marina
Can you spot two kitties having an afternoon snack in Abu Dhabi East Mangroves Marina?
Abu Dhabi is the capital city of the United Arab Emirates, and it is the second most populated city in the UAE after Dubai. That’s human population; we don’t know the statistics on kitties. It is a nice place to live for both humans and kitties, especially in the area around the East Mangroves Marina, where we spotted these two.
This kitty had a few words to say. Don’t worry, kitty; we’re not here for the kibble!
Abu Dhabi Kitty Spotted
Did you have any trouble spotting this kitty? The second Abu Dhabi kitty spotted us first, and came over for a little bit of a scritch.
It’s nice to meet you, kitty!
This kitty wanted to take a selfie with me!
Cat Life in the UAE
In the United Arab Emirates, the official language is Arabic, but there are so many foreigners here for work and travel that everyone speaks English. The Emirates are officially Islamic, which is great news for kitties, because Muslims follow the Prophet’s teaching to take great care of and lovingly look after pets, especially cats.
Spot the Kitty fans Penny and Kelly Borrowman of Calgary, Alberta, Canada did some wild kitty spotting in early September.
Can you spot the kitty in this picture?
Hint: it’s a bobcat!

The Borrowmans have not decided whether to call their visitor Bobcat Stanfield or Bobcat Marley. Which do you think is the better name for this sweet wild kitty?
Here’s a close up of Bobcat Stanfield relaxing in the lovely back garden.
This little bobcat has been stalking squirrels and jack rabbits in city yards and parks in South West Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Here Bobcat Marley poses for the camera before going to the next yard on his squirrel hunt.
Don’t you just want to go out and cuddle this guy? Bobcats are not dangerous, but they’re not cuddly pets, either. This area of the city is very close to a provincial park where deer, ospreys, and other wild animals live. The Borrowmans did the right thing by just taking pictures and otherwise leaving their guest alone to enjoy their garden. Hopefully he had such a nice visit that he’ll be back again shortly!

Spot the Kitty is in the process of moving HQ from China to Mexico, and along the way we have stopped to visit friends and family in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Baker and Lance enjoy visiting very much and wasted no time in finding great places to hide.
Lance is ready to go in his cat carrier.
Spot naughty Lance!
Spot naughty Lance!
Spot Baker! Is this a kitty or a box of macaroni and cheese? Hmm…
Baker is hiding very stealthily. Can you spot him?
Spot Baker! Also Lance, but he’s not hiding, he’s spotting birds outside.
Baker found! This is his favourite hiding place.
Baker found! He’s hiding in the cat cave; it’s not too difficult to spot him here.
Lance found! He knows he’s being naughty on top of the kitchen cabinets.
Not a lot of kitties to spot in Moscow. It has been rainy for most of our visit, which might explain why the kitties are hiding. Or maybe Moskovites just prefer to keep their kitties indoors.
However, walking past a field on our way to our hostel, we did see one intrepid little cat stalking some prey in the grass. Can you spot her?
Can you spot the Moscow kitty?
Here she is, stalking prey in the grass!
She also stalked a scritch behind the ear after she spotted us spotting her!
