#israel #cats

So I’ve been in Israel this past week with designboom, Dezeen, DeTnk, and We Heart and it has been incredible. I will be posting about the trip in detail, but for now here are some cats. Oh, and you can follow @VibeIsrael to keep tabs on what we’re doing out here.

    “Can I Has Marina Abramovic? But Sock It, I’m Better Than Her, So Where Is My Million?”

    #wow #woah

  • When I was last in Israel I was also struck by the number (and niceness) of stray cats in every part of the city. Great photos

    • yea they were really healthy looking i was surprised

  • That last one has probably set the record for most photographed cat in a few minutes;-)

  • Dana Sarel

    Dear Jeff,

    It was really great talking to you yesterday.
    Hope you had a wonderful time here.
    So happy to know there are more cat lovers around the world. Great photo. Was it in Jaffa?

    Have a great day.
    Dana.

    • wonderful to meet you Dana – the photos are from all over!

  • Droolin

    that black and white cats front legs kinda look like flippers

  • Ben Y

    really emphasizes the ubiquitous nature of cats. At least I think that’s what you were going for 🙂

  • After much deliberation I have removed some comments from this post – comments on both sides of an argument regarding whether or not I should have even visited Israel.

    A commentor accused me of being severely insensitive for travelling to Israel. I travelled there to see for myself first-hand what is going on there. I went to meet people there and try to learn about a country on the other side of the world. Should journalists stay out of every country where there is conflict of any kind?

    Travelling to other countries to experience them first-hand may be the best way to make an informed decision about a place (in my opinion).

    I have no political agenda here. I realise it is a complicated situation over there in Israel but my trip was art-focused as I use this site to highlight artists.

    If I feature artists/designers from Israel I am not taking sides on what is happening there, I feature work from all over the world every day.

    There are many things the American government is doing that I disagree with but I doubt I will hear about how insensitive I am being the next time I travel to New York.

    Thank you for understanding.

    I can’t believe I am actually closing the comments on a post about cats.
