Echo swaps life on the streets of Athens for a new home in Scotland

Echo swaps life on the streets of Athens for a new home in Scotland

Little Echo, formerly known as Michelle, was rescued on a very rainy day in Athens. She was sitting, soaking wet, in the middle of a wide, busy avenue, perhaps waiting to cross — a very dangerous undertaking. Cordelia from Nine Lives Greece takes up Echo’s story:

“Echo was picked up and taken to the vet; she purred all the way in the car and behaved perfectly at the clinic. She was friendly and sweet, a little over three months old, and in good health. Since then, she’s had her shots, and blood tests to verify her good condition. Now she’s decided that she really dislikes vets and shots! But has became a loving member of her foster family.

Echo is a very quiet cat who sleeps in her own bedroom all night long without meowing. She likes string, and give her a ribbon and she will love you forever. She enjoys being cuddled but sometimes, like all cats, she just wants her own space and time.

She is lucky enough to have found a forever home in Scotland with Suzanne and Jim, along with their cats Buddy and Star, and their dog Pop. We think she will make a perfect companion to playful Buddy, and with her film star looks will be a suitably glamorous addition to their fluffy family!”

    I’m happy that somebody took care of this beautiful little cat. I’m always sad when I go to Greece about the poor cats and dogs.

      They are a huge worry and you see them everywhere you look.

      • taphian November 22, 2013 at 3:54 pm - Reply

        yes, I know, but how can it be changed to the better? I always feed cats when I’m in Greece.

          There are some wonderful organisations there with great trap, neuter and release programs. Tip of the iceberg but every little helps.

            thanks for this information, hope that they are also in Kefalonia. Regards Mitza
