Imam Opens Mosque’s Doors To Stray Cats To Keep Them Warm

In Istanbul, Turkey, there exists a mosque where you can pray alongside cats. No kidding! The Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque’s imam Mustafa Efe has been letting stray cats for more than a year. He wanted to keep them warm during the cold winter days.

Efe makes his guests feel exactly like they’re at home. In fact, the kitties are so safe and comfy there that one cat even brought her kittens one by one! She placed her fluffballs right in the pulpit from where Efe preaches. “The kitty has found the heart of compassion and mercy,” Efe mentioned on Facebook.
