Travel Gift Guide 2023

Cats of Old Town Kotor

Gifts that do good

A charitable donation to an organization supporting work in an area your traveler has visited and cares about can make a wonderful gift.

For example, Kotor Kitties helps the feline population in and around Kotor, Montenegro. Kotor has so many cats that they have become a symbol of the town. While the cats are indeed adorable, there’s problems associated with their numbers, and so Kotor Kitties helps to spay and neuter the cats to help control the population.

Kotor Kitties has a 2024 calendar, with beautiful photos. This would make a perfect gift for someone who’s been to Kotor, Montenegro.


When selecting an organization to donate to, ensure that they are registered to receive donations in your home country and check into their rating on a site such as Charity Navigator.
