During our trip to Greece and the Mediterranean, we fell in love with the Cats. They are honestly everywhere and oh so cute. They know just how to look at you to get you to share a scrap of food from dinner. They are friendly and honestly know how to work over tourists to get what they want.
Cats of Greece and the Mediterranean
Our group fell in love with the Cats of Greece and the Mediterranean. I lost track of how many times we stopped to photograph and interact with the cats. Thankfully the entire group loved cats and did not think it was crazy to stop and pet a random cat.
There are cats almost every place we visited in Greece and the Mediterranean.
From the adorable kitten in Rhodes to the cute cats of Mykonos each one pulled at our heartstrings and made us wish we could rescue them all and take them home with us.
I am sure John would not be excited if I brought home a few dozen cats but I would love it.
We learned that cats were brought to many of the archaeological sites to help control rodents.
They have since become their own tourist attraction along with the gorgeous historical sites.
This orange cat was at the Acropolis taking a nap by a cannon as one does.
Did you know we have 6 cats? Learn more about them here.
