Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo – A Lazy Turkish Cat

Posted on / by Alex Berger

Sunbathing Cat in Southern Turkey

I’ve always felt like we should look to cats for lifestyle inspiration.  After all, as a human walking through a back alley in a small Turkish town near the ruins of Myra it’s easy to notice a junk’d car and either ignore it, or grumble about it being ugly litter. For a cat, on the other hand, it’s a warm place to relax and enjoy the weather…and this wasn’t just any weather.  It was a small window of warmth and sunshine just after some of the worst weather Turkey had seen in more than 25 years.  So, when you find yourself out and about, remember to take some time to pause and bask in the warmth and beauty of the moment. After all, you never know when some annoying tourist (or other life challenge) is bound to amble by, decide they need a photo and rouse you from your blissful reverie!
