12 Cats in Hong Kong You Need to See

by Elana

Dutch photographer, Marcel Heijnen, moved to Hong Kong and quickly noticed something unique. Every time he visited a traditional shop he saw a cat. Enthralled and fascinated by the feline friends, he began to photograph them at every opportunity. Cats living in shops, markets, and even alleys couldn't escape his camera. 

In fact, he took so many photos that he created an Instagram to share these cats with the world. Even more astonishing, he's preparing to launch a BOOK in December of some of the images he's captured.

Heijnen recently told BoredPanda that he, "couldn't resist photographing the feline fellows." Well, we can't resist enjoying his photos and we are thrilled to share them with you today.
