Warming Act of Kindness



In Istanbul, cold weather and an abnormally intense snowfall led to cancellation of classes in schools and around 500 international flights.

To help man’s best friend, staff of one of the shopping centers showed extreme kindness and mercy.

According to Turkish media, a shopping center in the area of Bakırköy, specializing primarily in the sale of food and textile products, opened its doors to homeless animals turning the center into a makeshift animal shelter.

​Turkish defender of animal rights Ece Öcal shared the news on his social media page and soon it was all over the internet. “Homeless animals are in need of human kindness, especially in this weather. Help them, share with them the warmth of your heart and they will be thankful to you for the rest of their life,” CNN Türk reported Ocal as saying.

That's good to see Bal. Wish it were the case all over Turkey (and the world for that matter) I prefer animals to some of the people I meet !

Re: Warming Act of Kindness

In Istanbul there is quite an active animal welfare set up .... Kadikoy having one of the best.....and other areas catching up and quite good at educating people on animal welfare Üsküdar Belediye are putting out its own cat boxes for sheltering cats in this bad weather ...







And last year in the bad weather this imam Mustafa Efe opened his Mosque to street cats because of the bad weather......



mosque to the stray kittens in his area

The mosque shelter comes as no less than a blessing for the stray cats, who otherwise would have had to battle the freezing temperatures of Istanbul.

Re: Warming Act of Kindness

Lovely photo's Bal and a delight to see some kindness. More speying of cats would be a good thing too. We have a feral cat "Iris" in Akbuk. We had her speyed and she had to have an eye removed. She is quite happy wandering around our complex and I pay a resident money to pay for her food (and others!) when we are not there.

Istanbul Beşiktaş district, the municipal veterinary team is distributing food to street animals in small shelters, and suffering dogs and cats are taken to shelters for treatment and care. The vet team has also launched a campaign asking locals to give their left-over food from home to street animals.

Re: Warming Act of Kindness

I absolutely effin hate cruelty to animals. It gets me calm to angry almost instantly.

It's great to see the good side of humans caring for animals but sadly I have never experienced a country yet-including here in Ireland- where wanton cruelty to defenceless animals is not rife

I applaud the system certain US states wherein if there's any question of animal cruelty child protection are also brought in

I firmly believe that show me someone who abuses pets and I will show you a child abuser-it's invariably a progression in that direction

Maybe sentences should reflect that too
