Things You probably don't know about Athens, Part 2

Athens is all about the strays.  We found adorable kitties everywhere.  And nearly all of them were snuggly and soft and very sweet.

These three little guys were hanging around the little zoo inside the National Gardens.

This one was particularly sweet.  She was in the Agora, and made little biscuits with her feet like Felix does.

This little cutie was in the Roman Forum.

Athens has dogs too.  Lots of stray dogs.  But they don't euthanize there, they just sterilize.  I have a theory that all the dogs we saw with the same blue collars were the ones the animal people had gotten already.  They just laid around and didn't bother anyone.  They didn't beg, or sniff you, or bark.  It was amazing really.  They also looked well fed, so maybe those weren't strays?  Who knows.  Regardless, there were dogs everywhere too.
