The first thing I noticed when I went to Athens for the first time is…
They have a lot of cute stray cats!
The good side is: These cats are pampered by tourists and animal welfare groups. They’re the guardians of tourists spots like the Acropolis and the official rodent hunters of the parks.
The bad side: They’re abandoned pets with no permanent home. They seek shelter in parks, subways and other places they can squeeze into. Not every cat gets fed, neutered, or attended to by the volunteer groups. Watch my vlog below:
