If you enter Yunlin's Dingxi community, it's like stepping foot into a fantastical cat kingdom! The walls are obviously painted, however the cats are so dimensional its as if they've come to life and are inviting you. These vivid and realistic cat paintings are planned and drafted by students from National Formosa University, before they are drawn in coordination with the community. It is said that the original idea arose as a way to commemorate a cat in the community. Of all the cats painted on the wall, you'll keep on seeing a yellow tabby cat: maybe this is the cat spoken of in the story? Although this is merely a short street, the 3D paintings depicted are all the results of painstaking work.  The cats constantly invite you take photos with them, while the Maowu Park is a place where the cats will play hide-and-seek. There's a total of nine cat shadows hidden throughout the park, they may be hidden on the rooftops or on the fence.  You surely can't pass up on an opportunity to visit such an adorable place! However, it is reccomended that you start from Zhongxi Elementary School (Yunlin County, Huwei Township, Guoxi Road, No. 63) and enter through the arched door by the Cihui Hall. It's also reccomended on holidays and weekends that you first find a good spot to park, before walking over so that it won't be as crowded.
