Cats from Istanbul {Turkey}

stray cats of istanbul

It's not the first time we've featured cats of Istanbul here on Traveling Cats. You may remember the famous Hagia Sophia cat, the many street cats of Istanbul, the cat of the Blue Mosque, and the cats of the Kaktus Café. Istanbul is indeed awash in cats. You're literally flanked by felines wherever you go, most of them well-fed and clean. And if you ever go to Istanbul, remember the famous saying: "If you hurt a cat, you need to build a mosque to be forgiven by God."

  2. Fantastic shots. I love the framing of the first one. The one with the palace in the background is an amazing composition. And of course, the third one is just silly-goofy.

  11. Oh my gosh, these photos are AMAZING!! Each one is perfect! My favorites are the cat stalking the large bird, stuck in a rail, washing up in front of the Taj Mahal, and sleeping in front of the bakery. Each one would make a great postcard.
