White Cats in Capri

White cat on a blue tile

I was in Capri, Italy, I noticed this big, iron door. It had a metalwork white cat on it and the words “gatto bianco” – Italian for “white cat”. Turned out that behind the door was a hotel called “Gatto Bianco”. Some Internet research taught me that ever since the hotel was built, a white cat has been part of the staff. The hotel’s current mascot Matisse can usually be found in the lobby, waiting to be pet by cat-loving tourists.

Do you have some decoration in or around your house that refers to your cat? Did you ever make a piece of art that refers to your beloved feline? Let me know!
