Aegean cats - Mykonos cats - stray cats? - nice looking cats and kittens - look like tabby and white but the mother looks like solid and white - photo by ++zola++
The Aegean cat is a bit of a mystery cat and the Greek cat fancy is equally mysterious but they have ostensibly been developing a cat breed called the Aegean cat since the early 1990s. It is surprising in the modern world that someone in the Greek Fancy hasn't got a website. Is there a Greek cat association? The strong indication is that there isn't. I don't think that the Greeks are into that kind of thing. I sense that for them the cat is a domestic cat or stray cat (and there would seem to be a lot) and the concept of a purebred cat is a little alien.
I think it fair to say that this cat breed's development is firmly in the embryonic stage rather than in its infancy. How else can we explain neither pictures nor words about the cat other than Sarah Hartwell's at Messybeast and copies?
The Aegean cat if we see one would be a fairly normal looking cat and possibly a bicolor with plenty of white (see solid and white coats). They might look a bit like the cats in the picture above in fact. These are mixed breed cats from the place of origin of the Aegean cat (in this instance an island called Mykonos, part of the Cycladic islands).
If this cat breed actually exists beyond the drawing board it must be one of the rare cat breeds.
