Casa de Campo loves cats. No, not cool cats, but the feline variety. They are everywhere. Being in a tropical paradise and with so many woods around, the mice population was having a real field day. So, people started bringing cats to the houses to keep the mice out. It worked. The cats are everywhere and the mice are under control.
There sisn't any better place to observe these felline guests than Altos de Chavon. They are everywhere. Black one, white ones, black and white ones. All kinds and sizes. If you are allergic to cats, you better sit inside the restaurants. If you sit outside, you will have cats as part of the environment.
It is also very interesting that there are many pigeons there and they seem to have an understanding with the cats. They all tolerate each other. It isn’t unusual for the pigeons to be walking around the cats. What you won't see much of in Casa de Campo these days is mice.
