Cemetery Cats

Artist quote: “there are hundreds of cats living in a cemetery of Sao Paulo…resting on the tombs…” ~ poivre

Lafayette Cemetery is located in Historical Gardens District. New Orleans, Louisiana. Location used in Anne Rice novels.  Lafayette Cemetery Cat by SalemCat

From what I’ve found there are many feral cats living in cemeteries. Perhaps it’s the warmth of the sun on the stone that attracts them to sit on the grave markers…or perhaps it’s something else altogether….

  2. Yes, sun warmed marble and cement, plus lots of chipmunks, mice, other rodents living among the stones, and places to hide while stalking unwary little birds. Not too many pesky humans about, and I would imagine many little areas for shelter. Seems a cemetery would be perfect for cats.
