Maltese Cats

We noticed lots of cats that ran about in the Upper Barrakka Gardens, but they looked well cared for, didn't beg for food, and seemed to live quite happily with the pigeons!!  They did, of course, accept any scraps you were willing to give them, as did the pigeons and, although they did seem to take great delight in scattering the pigeons on occasions, it seemed more like a game to them rather than a serious attempt to catch one.

The workers in the gardens seem to give them food at the end of the working day, and they all quite happily feed together with no fighting between them.

Many restaurants also seemed to have a 'resident cat' but again these cats seemed to be well looked after and didn't come in to beg for food.

I have created a separate page for some photos of the cats as I know lots of people don't like cats so, if anyone out there is reading my blog, if they don't like cats then they can skip this page!!

Here are some photos that I took - mostly at the gardens:

Raiding the rubbish bins

Feeding time

Feeding time - and no fighting


This little one had a harness and lead and was quite happily tied up outside a shop that it was 'looking after'. The owner looked quite mystified, but happy, at me making a fuss of it and taking its photo!!

This is one well fed cat!!
