Apparently, cat graffiti abounds on Hong Kong's inner city streets. Something 1/10/14 BackPacker winner, Jan Klinberg, found on a recent business trip there.

"I was traveling to Hong Kong for work and I had only one free day, so I decided to explore the island a bit. I was walking between Victoria Peak and Man Mo Temple when I came across this alleyway with the graffiti and found the imagery strangely compelling. Got down low and snapped the shot. I really liked the grittiness of the alley juxtaposed with the childlike qualities of the cat graffiti." - Jan
