What you'll do

Introduce ourselves to them! Yes! They are the locals and they have stories to share with you. Starting our cat-walk near Thissio metro station we get to meet a very sociable colony of cats who live at a nearby park, get to know their names and their backstories. Talkative Stavros will not stop meowing until he gets attention, while Sam and semi blind Cali will beg for your strokes. We continue our walk through the park, where we'll meet Freddie and his siblings who will welcome you to their area. Weaving through the quiet streets Thissio we find that every block has a small colony of cats! We continue our walk to yet another park and find our last colony and meet the fluffy black&white twins Bolek and Lolek among others. Our cat - walk finishes at Thissio metro station.

Wow! What an experience! Thank you, Eirini for sharing your furry friends with us. We saw 50+ cats on this tour and learned their names and special stories about each. We were honored to contribute to Eirini’s mission while enjoying some serious kitty time. We definitely recommend for any cat lover :)

I LOVED this experience! Being away from my cats back at home is hard but the dozens of cats today really filled the void. They were all so sweet and Eirini is so passionate about the cats, you can tell she really puts her heart and soul into helping them. They all had adorable, silly names and their own personalities. I would recommend this to anyone who is in need of a cat fix!

Made my day!!! We got to meet so many amazing kitties and I think Eirini is an absolute hero for all that she does for them. Animal oriented experiences usually mean animal exploitation and in this particular situation it was the exact opposite. So happy we went!

The host was Very friendly and she took her time to answer any question the group had. The cats were well taken care of and we got to pet quite a lot of them. Overall a very pleasant experience!

I am so happy to be able to support Eirini and her work with all of these adorable cats! It is clear the cats are well cared for and are happy to see Eirini. The kitties are very friendly and most love getting attention and pets. It is an easy and pretty walk, through a residential area and park, that begins and ends in a small square where you can also buy trinkets from local vendors. What a great way to support the cats, the culture, and Athens.
