A profile of an ancient city Istanbul and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat
Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the streets of Istanbul, neither wild nor tame. This is the story of seven of them.
For millennia, cats have roamed the city of Istanbul. Granted freedom and respect, they wander in and out of people’s lives, an essential part of this rich and proud city.

ways they enrich our lives.
