You may not think Hong Kong is a city of cats but keep your eyes peeled. In the right area, you’ll quite often catch strays skipping under cars and shop cats lounging amongst the wares. Let’s explore Hong Kong with Cat-teris’ own Jessica Tang and her feline friends.
Known for the luscious flower market, Prince Edward presents more than new leafy additions to your home, but it is also a hub for many furry felines. I have found that some shop cats usually show their faces during quieter moments at the flower market, when the usually packed streets filter out into an odd but welcome calm. Others seem to relish the opportunity to watch people-watch. They sit firm whilst you furiously snap photos but they never fail to divert their eyes whenever you try to get them to look into your camera lens – can’t get the models these days!
Mong Kok & Sham Shui Po
Central & Tai O
The population of these furry friends is not isolated to Kowloon. You’ll find them in the occasional medicine shop on Ko Shing Street, being carted in cat backpacks (yes, that is apparently a thing) or wild strays whizzing past under cars in the villages of the New Territories.
