One of the resident cats at the Nga Phe Kyaung Monastery basking in the sun. Also known as the Jumping Cat Monastery, the 18th century teak structure was built on stilts over Inle Lake in northern Burma. For over 20 years the monks have been training their cats to jump through hoops held in the air.
