Featuring stray cats with model looks and true cattitude, the Nine Lives Greece 2018 cat calendar is on sale now.
If you’re looking for the purrfect gift for cat-loving friends, the Nine Lives Greece 2018 calendar is the season’s top stocking filler! Featuring gorgeous portraits of photogenic felines in an attractive layout with space to note your essentials, all proceeds from its sales go straight back into helping stray/abandoned cats on the streets of Athens through feeding and vet care.
This year’s edition is photographed by Sofiana Psiachou. Born and raised in Athens, she studied photography and has worked as a photographer ever since. A year ago, she became a Nine Lives volunteer, combining her passion for photography with her love for cats. While feeding and catching cats in need of vet care, she always manages to have her camera at the ready to capture moments in the daily life of the stray cats of Athens. Despite the challenges, she finds it a deeply rewarding experience and is eager to continue expanding her cat portfolio.
The layout of our calendar is once again by the talented graphic designer Marketa Jagerova. Our friendship with Marketa goes back five years, when she came on holiday to Athens with her partner and found a kitten stuck in a car engine. That kitten, Odysseus, now lives very happily in Marketa’s home, helping with the finishing touches of each year’s Nine Lives calendar.
In contrast to the souvenir cat calendars commonly available at tourist shops around Greece, 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.
The full-colour wall calendar, with captions and holiday dates in both English and Greek, costs 10 euros per copy (excluding postal charges).
For Greek residents, if you live in Athens, you will find our calendars on sale at our fundraising events, or we can send you details of your nearest stockist. If you live in Greece, but outside Athens, we can send the calendars to you by post, with the antikatavoli (cash on delivery) system that includes a small charge for the post and packing. For our friends who live outside Greece, please email us your order and address, so that we can let you know the postage costs and payment arrangements.
