So while we were in Greece, I couldn’t help but notice all the cats. They were everywhere! In Athens at the Acropolis, wandering around the waterfront in Milos, and laying in the sun in Santorini. The cats of Greece really have got it made.
Being a cat lover I probably spent as much time photographing cats as I did beautiful landscapes and historic relics. So here are a few of those felines that seemed happy to pose for me.
We asked a local about the cats, and we were told that they aren’t seen as pets, they are just feral. But they aren’t considered pests either, they just seem to live a peaceful existence alongside people, in neighborhoods, and on monuments, and pretty much where ever they want. These cat literally just chill. The Greeks also don’t believe in spay/neutering them, feeling that it is inhumane. So that accounts for the vast numbers of them.
Well I hope you’ve enjoyed this little cat break, I certainly thought they we cute!
