Cats are EVERYWHERE in Istanbul and seemed to be a welcomed member of society. They casually sit on bar stools, restaurant booths, and anywhere they darn well please. People feed them and they seem to be pretty well revered.
Brent went on a solo excursion to one of the islands. When he landed this little fellow followed him around all day and then... took the ferry ride over to the main land. So glad this guy made sure Brent was safe all day in my absence!
I'm not sure this belongs here but I just don't know where else to put it. Somewhat disturbing was that leeches were for sale and cost differently based on their size. Holy creepies this is not okay.
Animals are so fun to watch and it's always a pleasant surprise when I get to see a wild anything meander across our path.
