Islands of the Egean sea are not only inhabited by Greek people; they are also inhabited by cats. Relations between Greek people and cats are different than in the north of Europe. Let's quote the photographer Hans Sylvester, about cats of the Cycladic islands: "These cats, that are domestic cats, are not abandoned, neither wild, they live for centuries with the humans. The Greek people of these islands like them without really liking them, they take care of them without really taking care of them; but they accept them totally. These cats are part of daily life, they've always been here, like the wind, the sun, the sea, the day and the night." Les Chats du Soleil, La Martinière, 1993
