Lonely Planet - ISTANBUL TOKAPI CATS



As Acropolis guarded by the dogs, Tokapi Palace was guarded by these loyal felines around the ground of the palace. Now i wonder whether these cats have been cursed to roam around the palace or maybe those cats were the legacy of the Ottoman's sultans...i think the palace is an animal-friendly just like in Athens too. In contrast, you won't see any cats or dogs around the palaces in UK, except the pigeons...


...hhhmmm...you looked yummy...meow, meow...wanna lick...

...grrrrr, what a cold morning...

...am i cute?

...hehehehe...definitely...

...what? why look-look huh?
