I love this cat.  He is so gentle and has a good nature.  He loved me carrying, hugging and kissing him.  He is hungry and is rather thin.

I will definitely bring him home if I lived in Greece.

Mr Chef standing behind, gave them pieces of chicken meat with bones, choking the yellow cat.  Luckily, it managed to vomit it out.

Mdm Japanese tourists fed them.

These 3 cats live in the mountain with rocks, forest and road.  I wonder how do they survive?  There is not a single soul there, so where do they get their food and water.  From tourists, I guess.


My Thoughts

There are so many cats in Greece, everywhere from city to the mountain areas.

Those at the mountain areas are skinny, hungry and scaredy cats.  Some are skin and bones.  Only the friendlier ones made themselves visible to the tourists, wanting to get food from them.
 
Most are sterilized ( their left ears are tipped ) in the city area, but not those at the mountains. 
 
Hopefully, someone will sterilize all of them.  Otherwise, in the future, there will be tons more of homeless cats.
 
When they are over populated, what will the authorities do?  They destroy them.  Hopefully, that will not happen in Greece, as the many animal lovers will protect them.

I too hope they are loved and have their meals regularly.

I see Malaysia has many skinny and hungry cats. Can never forget a young cat that is so skinny and hungry till it cant walk. Really pitiful.
