Photographer's Note

The state capital of Sarawak, Kuching literally means cat in the Malay language. There are several legends which talks about the origin of this name, but I will not go into that now. Though the city can not boast of a higher population of cat than other city, but it does have more sculptures of cats erected at strategic locations to go along with the "Cat City". This is one of them, a family of cats.

There is also a dedicated Cat Museum, one of the two in the world, which holds numerous memorabilia, photographs, sculptures, tomb stones, legends and stories of cats. For visitors to Kuching, it may be worthwhile paying a visit to this museum.
