This one is on a mission.

These little kittens payed a visit to my backyard. They’re cute, but I can’t feed them all. Luckily, their mother didn’t neglect them and she collected them later.

Αυτά τα μικρά γατάκια επισκέφτηκαν το κατώφλι μου. Είναι χαριτωμένα, αλλά δεν μπορώ να τα ταΐσω όλα. Ευτυχώς, η μητέρα τους δεν τα εγκατέλειψε και τα συνέλεξε αργότερα.

A New Cat in Town

newcat2newcat

This is a beautiful and gentle cat called a ‘Calico cat’. She has become a permanent resident in my backyard recently. They are called Calicos due to their coloration which is white, black and orange. It’s not the name of their breed. Calicos are mostly females and they can be found in Greece and other Mediterranean countries. Calicos that have the orange patches originate from Egypt.

According to folklore Calico cats are said to bring good luck in many cultures.

Calico cats are very popular in Japan and there are many figurines called the ‘Maneki-Neko’ that depict the calico cat breed. They are considered good luck and are placed at the entrances of homes and businesses.

I guess that  I’m very lucky to have her in my yard. There is no way that I am shooing her away!

It’s time for me to be more honest with the visitors of this blog. You see, it wasn’t me that was making these collages all this time..it was Angelo.

This is a huge revelation. Shocking!

Ήρθε η ώρα να είμαι πιο ειλικρινής με τους επισκέπτες αυτού του ιστολογίου. Βλέπετε, δεν ήμουν εγώ που έκανε αυτά τα κολάζ όλο αυτό το διάστημα.. ήταν Ο Αγγέλος.

Είναι μια τεράστια αποκάλυψη. Συγκλονιστικό!

The Canadian Sphynx is creepy looking, but is very affectionate.

He looks like my Turkish Angora, but this is different breed. Cat and raccon together!

So cute and fluffy!

A few photographs taken at a cat festival  last month here in Athens. All of the cats were so cute. It’s so crazy how many different breeds of cats there are. It was very informative, plus lots of free stuff for Angelo!
