Turkey Cat

“Hello! I found this cat napping on a Turkish book shop display in Istanbul. I took the photo. Thank you for your consideration!” – International Cuteporter Alexandra R.

(Aha! Headline, misleading it is! Reeled you in, we did. Geddit? A cat IN Turkey.)




  1. Now THAT’S what I call reading yourself to sleep !

  2. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    Oh, that would have been so tempted to pet dat belly…

  3. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    tempting. Back to my coffee now.

  4. Turkish people love kitties. 🙂

  5. Alice Shortcake says:

    How much is that moggy in the window?

  6. SlaveToCat says:

    That kitty is the size of an Ottoman. >.>

  7. Great photo! And what a butterball. 🙂 Another good caption: Turkish Delight.

    And customers sit on him when they read. Business is just kinda slow today… so turkeyball here decided to sleep.

  9. That looks like the happiest kitty in the world 🙂

  10. Aurhora says:

    A COXCU on the kitty’s face and paws, maybe?

  12. Clairdelune says:

    Had the same thought — that plump, floofy belleh is begging for a rub!!

  13. Clairdelune says:

    A Turkish one, of course. 😀

  14. Clairdelune says:

    And a well-read one too. 😀

  15. This cat looks better stuffed than my turkey.

  16. Turkish delight. Hee hee.

  17. 4leafclover says:

    Kitteh passed out cramming for finals.

  18. I asked for Turkish TAFFY, not Turkish TABBY!

  19. I would pick up that kitty as I was looking for books, ask if said kitty is book store owner’s and if not said kitty would have a home with me along with any books I bought there 😀


  21. Happy kitty: surrounded by books, sleeping on books, living with books. He’s in MY kind of heaven!

    Is there a larger version of this anywhere? I would love to have it as my wallpaper!

  23. Cat nap in a book nook! Can’t go wrong there!
