One of the reasons I love Morocco is because it’s a country crawling with cats. Moggies can be found everywhere, sleeping in mosques and medinas, lurking in the corners of market squares, and soaking up the sun near fishing boats.

Due in part to their cleanliness, cats are revered in the Islamic religion. According to tradition, Muhammad prohibited the persecution and killing of cats, and Islam teaches that cats should not be sold for money or other goods, and must be treated well.
