Join me in Parque John F. Kennedy in Lima Peru, affectionately known as CAT PARK! Located in the heart of Miraflores District, Parque Kennedy is home to hundreds of the most loved stray cats I've ever met. Local residents take care of these cats as a community with food, water, and a whole lot of love. You can also watch and share this video on Facebook and YouTube.
I discovered Cat Park last year when I first spent time in Lima, but I didn't get the chance to make a video. So when I had the opportunity to return to Lima last week, I brought my camera down to Parque Kennedy and spent an afternoon filming cats for your enjoyment. (Okay, for my enjoyment too!)
As many of you know, I love cats! In the video I mention a book that I co-authored a few years ago called Crazy Cat Owner which is a book that showcases the hilarious characteristics of cat owners who take “pet parenthood” to a new level. It's part of our Funterventions series. (We've got a Crazy Dog Owner book too.)
Check out Parque Kennedy next time you're in Lima Peru. It's not quite Aoshima, Japan (aka: Cat Island), but there are certainly enough cats in this park to satisfy any cat lover. Although I definitely plan on checking out Cat Island when I'm in Japan.
Thanks for watching and be sure to tell your cat loving friends about Cat Park. If you love my videos, follow Travel is Life on Facebook and then subscribe to my private e-mail list for all the good stuff that I don't offer on social media.

Alpacas Love Selfies – but they're so much more than selfie loving Instagrammable photo opps. High up in the Andes Mountains of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Chile, alpacas are bred for their super soft fiber and their delicious meat.
This Beach Rocks! – White sand beaches are overrated. They don't rock like this beach. Welcome to La Punta Callao, a small Beach on the northern side of Lima Peru where you can trade your bare feet for sneakers and soft white sand for pebbles and rocks.
