The Aegean Cat is a naturally developed breed from Greece, which means, these cats developed without external human interference. Although, as a breed, these felines are rare, they are extensively common in their home island of Cyclades in the Aegean Sea. Although the local people have welcomed them inside their households, the feral population of these cats is also large. They are found openly roaming around, or resting on a boundary wall or under the tree shed, or lurking around fishing boats. They are medium-sized cats with semi-long hair and a lean but muscular structure and a thick tail. The almond-shaped eyes of these cats are green. Since this cat has not been recognized by any cat registries, the probability to find it bred as a pet in an American household is less.

Aegean Cats tend to be smart and lively, with good communication skills. They are generally friendly toward people and can be excellent cats for families with children. True to their heritage as island cats, Aegeans don’t disdain water and may even go fishing for themselves. Consider this cat if you’ve always wanted a feline fishing buddy. If you have an aquarium or koi pond, however, you might want to make sure its denizens are protected from a curious cat with a grasping paw. The Aegean Cat usually likes being part of the family and is well suited to most types of homes. He’ll appreciate having an enclosed outdoor area where he can climb or lie out in the sun, but he shouldn’t be allowed to roam.
