The Colca Canyon in Peru is famous for its natural hot springs, its condors flying by at close range, and its archeological sites. But many tourists also make a stop to greet the local celebrity: an odd-eyed cat that lives in one of the Canyon's few houses.

The Nga Phe Kyaung monastery in Myanmar is many a cat lover's dream. Built on stilts on Inle Lake, the place is known as Jumping Cat Monastery because  the monks have trained the local cats to jump through small loops and hold performances. The acrobatic cats are named after Hollywood stars such as Demi Moore, Leonardo Di Caprio and Marilyn Monroe.
