There are a lot of cats in Turkey. At every stop we made tourists would first stop to take pictures of them and almost as an afterthought, realise they should also capture the amazing ancient sites, which was after all the purpose of our visit.
The cats turned into an unexpected highlight of our holiday and each stop we looked out to see how many we could spot. They all seemed well cared for and wherever they congregated, you would find containers of food that people had put out for them.
Between the three of us, we took lots of cat pictures, unusual as we are normally doggie rather than cat people, but these were just so cute. We saw quite a few dogs who were also well looked after, but the cats outnumbered them and below are just a few of my favourites.
