I'll be the first to admit that I've never been much of a cat person. Growing up they were always ignoring me, or getting in my way, or stabbing me with their nails (okay, that happened only once and it was an accident, but I digress). But all that changed during my trip to Greece, mainly because they are everywhere! There were so many in fact, that my sister and I began a multi-page "Cat Directory", complete with names and ID of those that we spotted on the mainland or on the islands of Aegina and Mykonos. By the end of it, I felt a little bit like Jane Goodall, except instead of living among the animals and learning their ways, I just tried to get as close as I could before they noticed me and ran away.

When looking for food photos to post for September's roundup, unfortunately, all I could find were a few measly photos of various crêpes I had eaten and a glass of lemonade served in a mason jar. Not exactly the kind of photos that make you salivate with hunger. Fortunately, I did have a ton of cat pictures, and I figured, who doesn't love cute animals? Even if you're allergic, here's an extremely hypoallergenic way to get up-close-and-personal with a few friendly, if not, extremely sleepy, felines.
