Istanbul has a serious overflow of street cats. there is even a mosque where they are known to take them in and care for them. each of the restaurants had cats hanging around looking for handouts.
|Looking for handouts|
my travel companion (against my advice) made the mistake of feeding one. within a few minutes we found ourselves becoming surrounded by more.
|and a random dog.|
overall they seemed like they received enough food and surprisingly I didn’t see locals kicking at them and abusing them which was nice to see. we did see a few with clipped ears showing they had been fixed but not many. Hopefully they city will keep up the effort of getting the animals fixed and help reduce the population.
