The cats are popular with tourists and locals alike. The internet is full of pictures of them and many go out of their way to feed and shelter them.

Mustafe Efe decided to take his love of the street cats to another level. He's opened his doors to the Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque in the historical district of Üsküdar to allow stray cats to live inside during the cold winter months.
He happily shares adorable photos of his "guests" on his Facebook page.
The kitties enjoy the warms. :)
Others have also posted and shared pictures of the cats in the mosque.
Mustafa has gained a lot of support and fans on social media for his kindness.
Here's a mama taking her kittens to Mustafa's welcoming mosque.
Kindess goes a long way - and we're grateful that this man has opened his heart to this needing felines.
