In Istanbul, Turkey, a mosque welcomes any and all visitors no matter who they are, even if they’re stray cats. That’s because Imam Mustafa Efe believes in offering generosity to all creatures in need, human or otherwise.

While people pray, cats roam freely among the mosque, interacting with people or just quietly grooming themselves without disturbing the worshippers. If you happen to be visiting Istanbul, drop by this mosque and you’ll see that people of all nationalities, ethnicities, and religions worship cats, so that means people can’t be all bad no matter what part of the world they live in.
