Cats from Istanbul {Turkey}

istanbul city for cat lovers

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 lore 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.

  7. Chats des villes. Leur vie n'est pas toujours très simple. Mais ceux là semblent heureux. Les musulmans ont une attitude assez ambivalente envers les chats.
    La première photo me fait penser à une d'Hisia que j'ai mise sur mon blog il y a peu.
