In the charming streets of Alanya, Turkey, a heartwarming scene recently unfolded that captured the attention of locals and tourists alike. A crowd began to gather along a bustling city sidewalk to admire an adorable cat who had become the center of attention.

A Lazy Evening

At the heart of this delightful spectacle lay a random cat, sprawled comfortably with his belly exposed to the sky. While he appeared to be doing little more than lounging, the crowd couldn’t resist his undeniable charm. Passersby stopped to smile, pet him, and even went so far as to offer him money as tokens of appreciation for his cuteness.

Although some may have assumed the cat to be a stray, that was not the case. This lovable furball is none other than Tarik, the resident pet of Golden Eye Jewellery, a nearby store. Ender, the jewelry store’s spokesperson, shared Tarik’s heartwarming story. Tarik came to them two years ago, weak and sick. They took him in, nursed him back to health. Now he’s quite at home in their shop.

Tarik, however, isn’t content with just lounging indoors. He frequently steps outside the store, inviting attention and affection from passersby. On this particular day, Tarik’s sociable nature yielded unexpected results. The generous donations left by strangers at his paws amounted to a nice sum of money.

Ender ensured that this windfall served a greater purpose. “We feed around 15 stray cats a day,” Ender explained. They used the money Tarik collected to organize a lavish feast for his friends, providing them with quality food. He mentioned that their goal is to increase people’s interest in stray animals.

The heartwarming story of Tarik, the attention-loving street cat, demonstrates how one furry friend’s charisma can make a positive impact on the lives of others. “We love cats,” Ender said with a smile, echoing the sentiments of those who gathered around Tarik that day. Clearly, they are not alone in their affection for these charming and endearing creatures.


In a world filled with hustle and bustle, it’s heartening to witness moments of compassion and kindness like this one. Tarik’s presence on the Alanya streets serves as a reminder that even the smallest gestures of love and care can make a world of difference for those in need.

Up next, watch as a cat plays with a deer.
