Port of Call: Corfu Part 4 - The Cats at the Monastery

From my research for this trip I have learned that the Greek islands are the best spots for cat sightings. I was hoping I'd find them. And I did, at the monastery. A clowder was living there. Although, not all were healthy. It was tough to see the ones that were sick, flea infested and those that needed a ton of TLC. I shied away from the sick ones, and although I photographed a few of them, I am not going to show them here.

The mayor of the clowder welcomed me.

Inside the monastery compound, more cats were seen in the nooks and crannies, on roofs, in flowerbeds, etc.

  12. Fortunately you only showed the cute side of these poor cats ! I always feel so sad for them when I see them mostly in Southern countries. Nobody cares. And our cats have such a spoiled life !
