Cats in temples — what more could you want? In 2007, biochemist David Wooster discovered the adorable cats, dogs, birds and monkeys of Thailand’s Buddhist temples. Naturally, he started photographing them, and quickly realized the subject is warm-and-fuzzy enough to turn into a book. Now, he’s pushing forward a Kickstarted project to get his book finished. Wooster writes,
“The Enlightened One instructed his followers 2,500 years ago never to harm fellow living beings, which is why the Buddhist monks and nuns have taken vows to care for the animals left at the temples.”
