Cats of Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia – what is it with Kuching and cats?

By on June 18, 2015 in Malaysia

I have been told that Kuching means cat, however, when I put Kuching in Google Translate, and select Malay to English, I get back Kuching.

However, as the town seems so opposed with cats I am going to assume the Kuching does mean cat because if it doesn’t then all the cat sculptures, T-shirts and cat-related material on sale in the town would be just weird.
