The Cats of Santiago

 Santiago, Chile — Mary 2015

Every country has its own unique qualities.

Turkey is the perfect mix of east and west, and had the best street art in the world.

Brasil has amazing beaches and vibrant people.

Colombia features Colombian dames and amazing landscapes.

The United States has In-N-Out and the southwest chunk where you can easily visit Las Vegas, Death Valley, Yosemite National Park, and Sequoia National Park over a weekend.

From what I had noticed previously, Chile was a great place to get tons of dirty looks simply for existing, and also the best place to witness a stray dog orgy in a public park. Not the most flattering things. But… upon closer inspection, it also houses the greatest collection of cat graffiti known to man. Amazingly, the entire collection is housed in Santiago alone.

Behold! The glory of Santiago!

The operator of Ninfitoon.com was responsible for roughly half of the collection, but the website was mysteriously taken down. This leaves us with a series of miraculous artwork without full a full explanation of why.

And so, like Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids before it, Santiago’s incredible collection of cat graffiti will remain one of the great mysteries of our time.
