A few animals from Turkey...

We always see many cats and dogs when we are away and often I feel so bad for them. This time there were many positives which made me feel so much better for the many animals there.
                                            This cutie was obviously well fed and relaxed..

                                        This one was waiting patiently for his owner to get his outer clothes off so they could go for a cooling swim. He ran down alongside him to the beach and then waited with a look that said hurry up. His owner told me they went into the water every day as it was so hot.
                                      I didn't see any one person with these two but they had several people during the day who obviously looked out for them and were very friendly..

                                       This cutie loved attention every time we went passed where he lived..
                               Down in the town there were lots of cats and this one was weaving in and out of our legs and letting us stroke and pet him.
                                          I made the mistake of picking him up and he let me know he was not happy by scratching me. The shop owner was so upset but said the cats were feral and although friendly now not used to being picked up yet. They were though all getting much more used to people. The best news was that the shops are open all year round and one of the ladies who lived there had instigated a TNR program and all the cats had been neutered and returned and were fed very well each day.
                              One of the large bowls of food left out for the kitties. Look at this cutie taking advantage of the buffet.
               I cat tell you how happy I was to hear about the TNR program and to know they were looked after so well. A huge improvement on other years. Hope everyone is well. I will try to get round the blogs and catch up as soon as I can.

What a great trip! And that's just fantastic news re: the TNR program. Let's hope more people get involved not only there but elsewhere, and that TNR becomes the norm at some point in the future.

How great that TNR is starting to reach countries that you wouldn't think of at first! My human says thank you for the lovely card.

We loved all the pictures and it's great news to hear of the TNR programme. The doggies and cats are lovely to see and the one turtle as well.

Beautiful animals, and god to hear they are cared for. What a handsome husky, too bad someone shaved him. That is so not necessary as our furs keep us cool in the heat and warm in the cold.
