Cats of Heraklion

Cats of Heraklion

What’s the first thing you see in this photo?

During my walk past this beautiful (but unfortunately abandoned) place, I felt someone looking at me.

No one was there, except of this cat resting on the empty table, filling the whole space with his presence. (don’t ask me how, I know it is a he)

He was staring at me, probably thinking – “Go away now stranger – you are not supposed to be here.”
I still remember his proud and superior look. The look of a genuine cat.


There are many stray dogs & cats in Heraklion. Many of them are catered for by Heraklion shop owners and citizens, still, there is a lot to do.

I plan to make a catalogue with all the shelters in Heraklion (and in Crete).

This can be handy for people that happen to see any emergency and do not know what to do.
