Spot the Kitty is on the Move: Today’s Kitty Cats Spotted in a Vietnamese Fishing Village

He isn't actually giving me a high-five; I am giving him a peanut. These monkeys were cheeky!

On our way to Can Gio Ecological Reserve, aka Monkey Island near Saigon, Vietnam, we stopped at a seafood market. We were supposed to buy and eat seafood, but instead we spotted kitties.

Can you spot the lucky little kitty who gets to live in cat paradise: a seafood market in Vietnam?

She was a nervous little girl but she popped her head out from behind the sugar canes long enough for me to get a snap of her.

If you read the trip-advisor link attached, it seems that Monkey Island is not everyone’s idea of a good time. I don’t know if it is because it is currently low season, or if they also read the reviews on Trip Advisor, but we felt the place had cleaned up a bit. There was no crocodile fishing and someone had cleaned up the garbage, but the monkeys were still very naughty and cheeky! One tried to make off with my hat! Our tour guide told us to hold on to our hats, and he meant it!

We heard this Saigon kitty meowing from around the corner long before we spotted her.

This Saigon kitty was so excited to be spotted! She wanted love, love, and more love! She actually looks a lot like Baker, the inventor of Spot the Kitty, right down to the slightly bobbed, crooked tail!

Spot the Kitty is on the Move: Today’s Kitties Spotted on Cat Ba Island, Vietnam!

Cat Ba Island - click to find out more about this exciting travel location!

You would think with a name like Cat Ba, the place would be filled with kitties! But in Cat Ba town itself, we unfortunately did not spot any kitties at all. Still, the town was a lovely place to spend the day, kitties or no kitties.

Next day we took a long jungle trek in Cat Ba Island’s national park, and stopped in Hien Hao village for lunch. I guess everyone in Hien Hao is a proper cat lover, because we spotted kitties at almost every house! Below are some of the highlights of our Hien Hao kitty spotting:

Here he is, the first kitty we spotted on Cat Ba. He looks like a bit of a derp, but I guess he was spotted in the middle of licking himself.

Cat Ba kitty 6 had no problems with her dog. In fact, she was in the middle of an intense lick-fest when we spotted her.

Cat Ba kitty 7, our last kitty from Cat Ba, was a little difficult to spot. This little black kitty was having a nice nap with her little footies all stretched out! Don't you just want to tickle that little puddy paw?

When we first arrived in Hanoi and started exploring, it seemed to be sadly lacking in kitties. However, to our surprise and delight, we discovered a sweet little ginger kitty living in the hostel where we stayed, Especen Hostel.

This kitty didn't like being picked up, but he did like being petted and I'm sure he  liked getting all the scraps from the hostel kitchen!
