In a city where hundreds of cats roam the streets, never to call any place their home, one mosque in Istanbul, Turkey, is opening its doors to those who seek warmth and shelter.

What a lovely man & what lucky cats. Loved the video of the Mummy cat bringing her babies to safety.

Mustafa Efe said it all: "The kitty has found the heart of compassion and mercy".
His open heart & open doors to the Mosque allowed a moma cat to bring her babies in, all the way up the stairs ... this moma cat knew where her cats would be safe! Seeing the image of the two men on t heir knees in prayer, patting this cat at the same time really struck me! How beautiful is the soul whose heart is open!
I do hope however, that they will neuter/spay these kittens when they are old enough, and of course their moma too!
Thanks Kathy for caring2share this awesome story ... this lifted me up!
