Here are just a couple of the many cat photos I seem to take ever year. Emporios is perhaps unique among Greek villages (and certainly villages on Kalymnos) in not being overrun by felines, so these 2009 cat-shots were photographed elsewhere on the island.

The first, a beggar at a waterside taverna, had a seriously ravaged tail and this cultivated expression of pathos that probably keeps him supplied with scraps from sentimental tourists...

This cat, O Best Beloved...
...reminds me of 'The Cat That Walked by Himself' from Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories...
