Erin Bosworth, a travel media specialist with Destination Greater Victoria, told Daily Hive that they’re into it.

“We love our community and that people have taken it upon themselves to pin where ā€œfriendly catsā€ are located ā€“ identifying them as a tourist attraction,” said Bosworth.

“We do think it says a lot about the down-to-earth, friendly nature of Victorians, and weā€™re definitely going to get out ourselves to meet some of these lovely felines,” they said.

So if you’re a cat lover, then visit Victoria and be sure to leave your rating and review if you meet a lovely neighbourhood cat.
