Thousands of cats roam in Istanbul freely, becoming an essential character of the metropol. However their life is not as easy as you may see in the istanbul postcards, or city guides.
The video is from an abandoned construction site, where many cats are sheltered. They had been through a lot. A construction site, on the side of a very dense traffic road is not the safest place for them; they had been hit by cars, stuck between dry walls, fall into the lift shafts and wound by rusty nails. These cats depend on just me to provide 30kgs of cat food each month.They get no healtcare, no routine checks, no injections. They are not sterilised and larger in number each day.
I am not capable of financing all these, even very hard to keep buying this amount of food each month. Nevertheless, my dream is not just to keep feeding them as long as I could but to give them a safe home. Me, as an architect and a veterinary technican student and my husband, an engineer are very willing build a safe home for these cats with your supports.
