We’re staying at the Pia Bella Hotel, around which a number of cats seem to live.

Kim from KAR tells us they’re quite familiar with “the Pia Bella cats”, having rounded them all up for neutering and ear-tipping in the past.

The cats are very much part of daily life at the hotel. The tourists all talk to them, and one ginger chap even visited us for a chat in our room — purring for North Cyprus!
