The “Cat-Catcher” of Athens

When I saw this man playing the flute surrounded by cats, the first thing that came to mind was the story of the Rattenfänger von Hameln (Rat-Catcher of Hamelin).

There are plenty of stray cats everywhere and people put out food for them like at this spot near the Acropolis. I walked this path several times by now and there are always a fair amount of cats gathered around.

Cats of Athens

One evening on my way home while I was browsing shop windows on Patission street in Athens. Can you spot the odd item?

On Top of Mount Lykavittos

Went to watch the sunset on top of Mount Lycabettus/ Lykavittos here in Athens the other week. Got a beautiful view over the whole city.

What caught my eye at the viewing point though was the white cat that was chilling at the jewelery seller stand without a care in the world.
