The Greek Island of Ithaca

The Glorious Feline Revolution has spread to the ancient island of Ithaca, part of the great country of Greece. It is only fitting that Chairman Meow should appear in Greece during the 2008 Olympics.

A loyalist from Greece wrote via electronic mail:
Thanks for the stickers! Chairman Meow is now riding around on the small Greek island of Ithaca.

It should be pointed out that Chairman Meow enjoys the foods of the Mediterranean diet, which may include olives, wine, and smelly sardines. Great Leader would also like to remind the revolution of the power of this legendary island, home to Odysseus himself. The story of Odysseus has survived over thousands of years. May the Feline Revolution so endure, with freedom, hope, and sculptures of great feline leaders to be erected across the globe.

In Homer's Odyssey, the mythologic character of Odysseus stated:
I dwell in shining Ithaca. There is a mountain there,
high Neriton, covered in forests. Many islands
lie around it, very close to each other,
Doulichion, Same, and wooded Zacynthos--
but low-lying Ithaca is farthest out to sea,
towards the sunset, and the others are apart, towards the dawn and sun.
It is rough, but it raises good men.
The Chairman Meow Propaganda Campaign has now raised 16 dollars for animal rescue, thanks to your photos. This translates into 3,664 Greek Drachmae, a currency which is now obsolete, or 10.72 Euros, a currency increasingly preferred by gangster rap.
