Say Hello To The Beautiful Stray Cats Of Istanbul, Turkey

In Istanbul, Turkey, swarms of cats follow you wherever you go. This is because cats are very much respected in this predominantly Muslim society. Islamic tale tells of a cat thwarting a poisonous snake that had approached the Prophet, Muhammad. In another tale, the prophet found his cat sleeping on the edge of his vest. Instead of shifting the cat, the prophet cut off the portion of the vest that was free and wore it without disturbing the pet. Here are some of the most beautiful cats living in Instanbul, the purr-fect city for cat lovers.
