During Istanbul’s recent snowstorm, local shop owners are keeping local strays warm
Some are giving up floorspace to the city’s stray dogs on their shop floor…
…While others turned their place into a sanctuary for stray cats
Selçuk Bayal did just this in his cafe/stationary store!
“These creatures are entrusted to us … we are responsible for looking after them”
Other locals have put out cardboard and food for doggs and their pups on the streets
Bayal also told that the cats are “grateful” for the shelter
The dogs also look happy with their newfound places to sleep
And we think that with stories like these, that 2017 might well be a happy year!
