Dark Gray and White Cat on Mykonos


This is a straightforward shot taken just a few minutes before I photographed the 'Black Cat Waiting for the Painter' during a morning photo walk. I decided to post this image since it includes the characteristic whitewashed building, with a faded 'Greek blue' shutter behind the cat. A typical setting on Mykonos, and the Greek Cyclades islands in general.

Notice the clump of wet fur sticking up from the middle of his tail. I'm pretty sure I interrupted a grooming session as I approached to photograph him. Greek cats, like cats everywhere, like to keep their tails looking just right, so he probably went back to work on it once I walked away.

I like your blog very very much as I am a cat lover. I think you had a great idea. I took some photographs of some cats during my travel through Europe too. I haven´t been to Greece yet but I have a hint that I would love it there. Feed the cats on my behalf too please :)
