Cats
Possibly, there are as many cats on Crete as there are people - there are no statistics.

In our tiny village, anyway, I know of cats in the security of homes and fenced gardens, I know of at least 40 cats being
fed - every day - by one Greek and one Danish women, and I know of cats who roam and live in total freedom by hunting
among the olive trees. Their complete freedom, of course, includes the freedom to be run over by cars on the highway
we have here, and also on the most normal roads from village to village.

'Arga' (slow) reads an admonishing sign to the drivers, but it rarely helps. Even there, cats get run over.

Outside our village, there are other cats - too many to count - and some have huge villa's and grand estates to
themselves, other seem to permanently inhabit garbage bins, a third group loiters around restaurants and along the
beaches.

Walking and driving through Crete, from East to West and North to South, we always photographs cats - indigenous
as well as foreign ones - and here's a small collection from our more than a thousand images of your and our feline
neighbours.

Enjoy!
