Mews and Nips: Tombili the Cat Memorialized With Her Own Statue


You’ve probably seen the famous photo of a rubenesque cat casually reclining on a sidewalk. Tombili, the cat in the iconic image that captured hearts around the world, was a beloved presence in her Istanbul neighborhood. After she passed away in August, the Anatolian Cat Project, and educational community for cat lovers, asked the neighborhood to put up a statue commemorating Tombili. The statue was unveiled earlier this week. Read the full story on The Huffington Post.

    I didn’t know she passed. What a wonderful thing to create and place her own statue there. Just when I get discouraged, my faith in humanity us restored and it always is animal related. Have a wonderful weekend.
