Pets in Crete

cretan catalist gr catcafeIf you are a pet lover, beyond cats and dogs, you may find Animal Welfare on Crete a bit of a controversial, even sad subject sometimes, for the Greek culture has not traditionally been what we mainly urbanised British expatriates would call animal friendly. In truth, the mainly rural Crete lifestyle reflects the practical side of day-to-day existence on the island, such as rearing and killing animals for consumption and their products. Cats and dogs are already used as help around the Cretan house or the outdoors keeping the Pine Martins and Rats at bay.

Left: Photo entitled: "Cat Cafe". A nice human touch for the welfare of the cats, a small purpose-built house for the felines to eat in, at one local Cretan human's home.
