You can even get the photo embedded on a custom meow meow t-shirt.

Woof Woof Cruise

Since there’s a Meow Meow cruise for cats, it makes sense that they’re working on one for dog-lovers. The Woof Woof Cruise is a soon to be counterpart of the cat lovers cruise. It is a place for people to share their love for our fuzzy four-legged friends. Service dogs are the only animals allowed on ships currently, but you can still take plenty of pictures to show your furry friends when you get home!

The Lanai Cat Sanctuary on the Hawaiian island of Lanai is a popular tourist spot thanks to all their furry friends. The sanctuary started as a haven for tropical birds, but over time, they started accepting stray cats as well!

Known as “Hawaiian Lions” to those who work there, the kitties enjoy fun in the sun and a lot of love from visiting travelers. Guests can adopt any of the cats or you can even sponsor a cat if taking one home isn’t an option.
