As we walked down this narrow street at Kastro, we became aware that we were watched by this Greek cat that kept her ears barely above the wall to follow our sound. Every once in a while she will slowly raise her eyes above the wall, she would look at us, and then she would lower them down again, leaving her ears exposed.
