Greetings from Istanbul, Turkey
To be honest, I did not like cats until last year. It may be because I had a dog for 10 years and he barked at cats in our garden. When he passed, a cat stopped by our gargen and my interest in these creatures bumped suddenly. I got a cat for my girlfriend in the following months (a british shorthair male) and another one (persian). I wish for them to have a long, healthy life.
