No that Dubrovnik statue doesn't have a tongue...it has a cat! Reader's photo

No that Dubrovnik statue doesn't have a tongue...it has a cat!

By  Sep 18, 2019

The stone streets of the Old City of Dubrovnik not only carry the weight of tourists through the summer months but also the slightly more delicate scamper of cats.

With plenty of restaurants, fish markets and generous locals around the cats normally resemble Garfield. And during the hot September sunshine they look for shady spots to sleep off the last fish supper. Normally they tuck themselves away in gardens or behind walls, but this cat has quite clearly taken a more unique approach to finding a tranquil bed.

With just its head hanging out of the mouth of a gargoyle passers-by thought at first that the stone relief had a tongue, until on closer inspection they saw a ginger head.
