Cats of Athens
One of the things I didn’t expect in Athens, was the sheer number of stray cats. They are everywhere. They are quite brazen about slinking around under your table as you eat, hoping for some dropped goodies, and were quite expert at avoiding being touched. They have adapted to the environment quite well.
I took a lot of pictures of the cats during our time there, so thought I would share them with you.
Talking to some locals, we learned that stray dogs and cats were rounded up periodically and spayed/neutered, given their immunizations, and then released back onto the streets. The dogs even often received names, collars, and tags during this process. There was just nothing else to be done with them.
