I managed to snap one cat pic while in the Alfama district of Lisbon earlier this year.
And Lisbon-gato basically just tolerated my presence. Barely.
While walking through the Lauterbrunnen Valley a couple of years ago, I came across a Swiss feline practicing a bit of sun worship. This cat really knew how to chill.
And last year I went for a short hike in Zermatt, when this copper-colored cutie decided it wanted to be my hiking buddy!
I was like, a-ight. You can join me.
Then the cat got bored and went its own way. But she was a fun companion for a while!
In Istanbul, Turkey, I saw so many cute cats! Like, gawd!
Have I ever told you how much I love Turkey? And particularly, Istanbul?
Well, it’s an amazing city! A crossroads of civilizations! But part of my Istanbul-infatuation might have something to do with its cats.
And when it comes to Turkish cats, I’ve got two recommendations for you! Firstly, go follow Sarper Duman on Instagram! (Basically, he’s a Turkish guy who makes sweet music with his rescue cats!)
Secondly, watch Kedi, if you get the chance. Kedi means cat in Turkish, and it’s a documentary about Istanbul’s street cats! I highly recommend it!
