Stray animals are part of the ecological, social and cultural functioning of cities. This paper aims, in an exploratory way, to reflect on the specificity of the athenian cats. They are part of the formal and informal planning of the city and this is particularly a women-led planning and it shows a form of « athenian ecofeminism ». Moreover, the cats are part of the identity of Athens and are involved in a process of heritagization.
