Greek Cats

Here we share some of the most beautiful images of Greek cats.

The feline friends are all over Greece just waiting to snap up a tid-bit under the taverna table or find a shady spot to snooze all day...its a cat's life...

The cats of Greece usually steal a few hearts of visitors who cannot help but rescue them or at least feed them a little...just a little...

Greek Cats


The interesting thing about cats in Greece is that they speak Greek. So if you want to get their attention you need to practise your Greek...psipsina...psip psip...that will usually get their attention!

Zefiros Taverna, Azolimnos Syros

This last kitten was making a home at the Zefiros Taverna, (above) next to Azolimnos Beach on Syros. Looking right over the beach, serving traditional Greek food and seafood, this is a wonderful place to dine in Syros. Don't mind the little furry friend...the service is wonderful here and the food always fresh and tasty. Vasiliki will look after you...

Of course, there are many different approaches to the cats of Greece. Locals and tourists and those coming to live in Greece always have some different philosophies.

Some people call them 'strays'. They can't perceive of a wild cat with no human home. There are many, many cat rescue organisations in Greece. There is also the issue of neutering. So the conversation goes on. It requires patience and understanding.

What would the cats tell us, if they could speak?
