Photo Collection #1: Athenian Cats (and other animals) – Part 1
Cats-we know you love them. Oh yeah, and the other ones too. So here’s a collection of your favourite felines, dogs, and-oh sod it, just have a look.
This was a beautiful tortoiseshell that was sitting just next to the Odeum of Herodes Atticus. Afterwards, she went for a bit of a lie down.
A blurred closeup, but upon closer inspection I thought it was rather fitting.
One of the many stray dogs just hanging about in Athens. This one chose the middle of the path.
Here’s a closeup of a [monarch?] butterfly above the Acropolis.
Partners in crime.
This lovely ginger over here was considering going on a diet.
A little robin looked at us suspiciously as we walked to the Plaka.
‘I’ve been expecting you.’
Some nice folks had left food and water out for the abundance of stray cats in the neighbourhood. It also provided a means of shelter from the pouring rain, like this little grey kitten was doing.
One of the other kittens had something wrong with his eye.
Next to the restaurant where we were having lunch that day, we met three kittens playing around in a nearby flowerpot.
Did you know pigeons, like flamingos, can stand on one leg?
Let’s end on a high note-demon dogs!
(Nah, I’m kidding. It just barked a lot.)
More to come soon!
