Most cats you’ll encounter on the streets of Greece are strays, and the people take it upon themselves to offer the neighborhood cats food, water, and shelter.
If you look at both the Greeks and Romans, you’ll find that they regarded cats highly and saw them as a symbol of independence.
Greece is a perfect land for them because there are no harsh winters; cats are free to scavenge through the trash, eat the leftovers from the taverns, and be fed by the locals.
Make sure you ask the owners of the tavern and the place you’re staying if they’re ok with you feeding the strays first.
If you meet an affectionate kitty, it’s important that you don’t take them with you in your apartment or hotel room if you’re not planning on adopting them.
