More Mediterranean cats ahoy! On our Christmas trip to Morocco back in 2014, we first encountered the stray cats of these warm-weather countries. Like those we would see later in Turkey and Greece, many of these cats were well looked after by the townspeople — better stray cats in the city than stray rats.
We left out some of the sadder and grislier pictures of the harsh realities of life on the streets — like images of cats swarming around the local butcher as he threw freshly chopped chicken heads into the scrum — but we feel it’s important to remember while we’re ogling the cuteness of these semi-strays.
