Chilly Kitties Find Warm Space In Turkish Mosque
One Imam in Istanbul, Turkey decided to open up his mosque to stray cats in the area. And the response has been a-meowzing!
Like many cities, Turkey's former capital, Constantinople (now Istanbul) has a stray cat problem, and these poor kitties have to rough out the freezing winters outdoors. It's so bad that the city has acquired the nickname, "Catstantinople." The Instagram account Cats of Istanbul has over 7,000 followers and the hashtag #CatsOfIstanbul has over 66,000 tags. They even have their own webpage.
