    Default Imam opens Mosque to Stray Cats to keep them warm

    He wants to keep them warm during the cold winter days


    In Istanbul, Turkey, there’s a mosque where you can pray alongside cats


    The Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque’s imam Mustafa Efe has been letting stray cats in since 2014


    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

    I love this idea! Hope it catches on. Those cats are loved and very comfy.

    So sweet - I hear Turkey has lots of street kitties, hopefully more mosques follow!
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    I seriously read "Iman opens mosque ....." I thought poor woman, she's taking grieving over her husband David Bowie to a whole new level.

    That is so great, hope they take it one step further and have all the kitties spayed/neutered.
