Cassandra or Kassandra (in Greek Κασσάνδρα) was a princess of Troy, daughter of the King Priam and Queen Hecuba. She was a beautiful woman with curly brown hair and dark eyes. She was given the gift of prophecy by Apollo, but after receiving it she broke her promise to give herself to him. To punish her, Apollo cursed her that though she would see the futur, nobody would never believes her predictions. In modern usage Cassandra metaphor (Cassandra “syndrome”, “complex”, phenomenon” …) is used when someone’s valid warnings or concerns are disbelieved by others.

Cat (in Greek γάτα) ! Cats are everywhere in Greece! Feral cats are wandering in every village and even big towns like Athens. You can’t walk around without being into the path of one of those beautiful animals. The oldest representation of domestic cats in Ancient Greece is on coins dating from the mid-fifth century BC from the Magna Graecia, now days Southern Italy and Sicily.

The Aegean cat is the only breed in Greece and is considered to be the oldest domesticated one. These cats have a bicolour or tricolour coat with one of the colour being most of the time white. Aegean cats have a big affinity for water and fishing. That’s why you often meet them amongst ports and seashores.

In many cultures cats are meant to have multiple lives. In Greece it is said that they have seven lives!
