Nike the Greek Cat
Nike the Greek Cat is the story of cats in civilization.
Over 9500 humans started domesticating cats. Despite our feline friends being fiercely independent the humble cat obviously enjoys his privileges and rights.
On a short visit to Greece before the Covid-19 lockdowns I enjoyed a trip to Athens and Mykonos. The beauty in the ancient world captured my intrigue and imagination. As did the cats.
Nike is the iconic cat, patrolling the ancient pavements with it’s nimble agile gait.
