If you fit squarely in this cohort, you might find yourself Instagramming the heck out of your feline friend, or even planning vacations around spots you can take Fluffy too. Heck, even if you don't currently have a cat, you can still travel to cat-centric vacation destinations to get your fix. From huge sanctuaries to ancient temples, islands, and museum exhibitions devoted to the humble domestic feline in history, the globe's got a lot of exciting itineraries for anybody who wants to make cats the focal point of a trip — or just have a day of cat-loving in the midst of a bigger adventure. It's all enough to make your cat at home feel almost jealous of your affections.
Make sure to do your research before visiting a place that puts cats front and center, as with anything involving animals.
