Our 2018 photo challenge is here.
Get your smart phones and other cameras ready. Once again, we're challenging you to submit your best travel photos with cats that "own" their space anywhere they live around the world. Mail your best photos along with your name and location to firstname.lastname@example.org and watch this space for new entries. At the end of the summer, we'll announce the best of the best and feature your photography in our social media and other communication outlets.

Jean Lynady spotted this lady surveying the island of Elba off the coast of Italy. Once the site of Napoleon's exile, it now offers cultural and recreational options for visitors. Cats know a good thing when they see it.
