The Aegean cat is a naturally occurring landrace of domestic cat originating from the Cycladic Islands of Greece. Development as a formal breed began in the early 1990s by breeders in the fledgling Greek cat fancy, but the variety has yet to be recognized by any major fancier and breeder organization. It is considered to be the only native Greek variety of cat.
Karen moved to Mineral Wells, Texas, in 1978. The neighbors had every kind of domesticated and semi-domesticated bird imaginable. Including peacocks, which flew the coop, and built their nests under the juniper bushes in the front yard.
