IMAM MUSTAFA EFE: Opens Mosque’s Doors To Stray Cats To Keep Them Warm


In Istanbul, there’s a mosque where you can pray alongside cats. We’re not kitten you! The Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque’s imam Mustafa Efe has been letting stray cats in since last year. He wants to keep them warm during the cold winter days. Efe makes his guests feel exactly like at home. In fact, the felines are so safe and comfy there that one cat even brought her kittens one by one! She placed her fluffballs in the pulpit from where Efe preaches. “The kitty has found the heart of compassion and mercy,” Efe wrote on Facebook. ( By Julija Televičiūtė from ) We hope other church take imam’s example and do the same. Winter time is hard, and animals are creatures of God too…
