There is a legend about the origin of the cats on the islands, explaining this big love of warm-hearted Greeks towards fluffy little creatures. A long time ago the island was full of rats and mice that tended to spoil all the harvest. Local inhabitants stayed terrified under the invasion of rodents until some traders from Egypt introduced the islanders with cats. It was a mutual love and understanding since cats hunted the mice and their new masters paid them back with respect and care.
