The holidays come fast, not to mention the frenzy of Black Friday sales in the US and multiple craft markets around the world. So early November seems a perfect time to pick up a few unique treasures for the cat lovers in your family, holiday gifts that give to cats as well as people.
Nine Lives Greece has released another creative masterpiece in its 2017 calendar. Featuring gorgeous portraits of photogenic Athenian felines in an attractive layout with space to note your essentials, all proceeds from its sales go back into helping those very same cats through feeding and vet care.
This year’s edition is photographed by José Escobar. The Cuban-born professor is based in Thessaloniki, where he devotes his time to caring for cats, photography, ink painting and drawings. The team at Nine Lives Greece has long been a fan of his work. When they invited him to Athens to photograph some of the 450-plus street cats they take care of every day, he enthusiastically agreed. He describes the experience of working with Nine Lives Greece, photographing the cats and meeting the devoted individuals who care for them, as rewarding and moving.
In contrast to the souvenir cat calendars commonly available at tourist shops and malls, every single cent of profit from sales of the Nine Lives Greece calendar goes directly into the continued feeding and veterinary care of street cats throughout the Greek capital, some of which are featured in the calendar itself.
