Life is just sooooo tiring......

This was Philip's favourite. He was a little battle scarred and grubby but friendly enough. He liked sleeping in the BBQ. and piles of rubble, for some unknown reason. Still, cats will be cats.

Never mind the scars.....

We are a real soft touch when it comes to cats (three of them owning us, we have to be!) so can never resist the opportunity of photographing them. In Greece, they are certainly a mixed bag, from the well looked after to the scraggy, fighting toms, complete with battered everything.
Philip took this picture. Despite his battle scars, he was very friendly.

Don't touch me....

This was a magnificent specimen that woudn't allow itself to be stroked but would let you feed it. Suprise suprise!!!
We did actually see people feeding cats with tinned food in Horton, Pilion. A lot of the cats in Pilion were not in good shape and had most definitely been in the wars a lot.

So cute.......

How could you not fall for this little kitty? She was a real beaut, very friendly and extremely playful. The taverna owner asked if we would take it home. Despite this, it was obviously tolerated and looked after reasonably well, it being in lovely condition.


I'm sure these cats were used to having their photos taken, they just sat there and posed!!
This one wasn't in bad condition.

Don't Bother to Wake Me.....

Another Pilion cat, very relaxed with not a care in the world.

Old Manky Eye

This was one of my favourites and always came trotting when called. One of his eyes was badly damaged but he was such a friendly thing. He had an amazingly soft coat which for all his rolling around never felt gritty.

Patiently Waiting

And lastly.....
I'm a sucker for tabbies. They seem to be becoming a lot more familiar in Greece, nowadays.
