The Cats of Istanbul

Before I went to Istanbul, I had no idea that there are so many cats in the streets! They are loved and petted by nearly all locals and tourists, and some look really majestic, not like normal street cats. I couldn't pass them without taking many pictures, and so I got a very huge cat gallery.

Maybe there are some allergic people, who are not happy to read about all the cats in the city. ;) Even at night, in the bars or at the tables in front of restaurants, the cats are showing up, twining around people’s legs. Not all are as tame and some cats also ran away as soon as I got my camera out.But most of them are sitting patiently, not letting themselves being disturbed by anybody. Did you ever see such patient photo models?

Poor dogs, the only thing they can do is play dead. ..
