Orin is a photographer who loves traveling and animals more than anything else in the world. Since he travels so much, he doesn’t have his own dog or cat yet. And so, he always makes sure to take photos of the animals he sees while he’s traveling!

In April 2019, Orin went on a trip to Istanbul. He was amazed by how many stray cats there were and how friendly they were to him.

In an article on Bored Panda, Orin explained how friendly the cats were to him. He said that they were always coming up to him for cuddles!

“If I stood in one spot for just a few minutes, it was guaranteed that one would come running to be stroked… and then soon after, another! I believe it is a reflection of the warm hearts of the Turkish people, who have taken it upon themselves to care for these animals, feeding them and even building them adorable houses,” Orin said.

One day, Orin went for a stroll by the Bosphorus Canal. There, he saw one of the most incredible sights on his trip.

He found two stray cats cuddling. They were completely inseparable, and it was clear they loved each other deeply.

Orin took some photos for his Instagram page, but then he started worrying that people would think the photos were staged. They just looked too perfect!

“As I quickly snapped photos, I wondered if anyone would believe it wasn’t staged but then, who could ever possibly pose cats like this? Who would even try? Life’s too short for that!”

Orin absolutely loved his time in Istanbul, and he says he can’t wait to go back.

“Needless to say, I loved Istanbul and can’t wait to return. I miss the kind people, the scrumptious food, and of course, the little furry ones. I wonder if some of them, too, miss me back. Aw. Hehe.”
