    Cats in mosques, decorated bird houses and blankets for stray dogs. These are common sights in Turkey. The special place animals have in the hearts of the Turkish people goes back to the Ottoman Empire when caring for animals was encouraged by the Sultan himself.

Turks kindness or relationship with animals have absolutely nothing with islam, just the way they are or perhaps it's their culture. In fact, arab muslims almost hate stray animals, especially dogs.

As a Turkish, I can say that we consider them as a person of society. Most of us don't even take and carry them away when they come to us while sitting in a cafe, we try to convince them instead.

At this point, Turkish culture has much more contribution than the Ottoman Empire. It is inevitable that the Ottoman Empire was affected by this. We can directly call this a characteristic of Anatolian people.

This video is so misleading. It makes people to go "see Turkish people care" how about their endless wars with Kurds? How about Lgbtw rights in Turkey and ACTUALLY caring about the well being of living beings. Be all kind and shir towards animals you want but there are reasons why Turkey will NEVER be part of EU. They have to come in terms with genocides they have been committing and all the propaganda and misinformation spread to justify their leaders' bad decision makings. This video is pointless and misleads.

Again, this has nothing to do with islam. Does Bible say "kill all the animals".. ? No, of course not. This is about ancient codes which come from Asian belief, Tengrism. Turkic people believe animals are equals, not pets. islam sees cats holy but curses dogs especially black ones. In Turkey it doesnt matter, dog, cat, bird etc. So religion is not the main reason behind this.

Not just Turcs, all the Muslims respect and love animals, we share this beautiful planet with them. The American poet and travel author Bayard Taylor (1825–1878) was astonished when he discovered a *Syrian hospital where cats roamed freely.* The institution, in which domestic felines were sheltered and nourished, *was funded by a waqf,* along with *caretakers' wages, veterinary care and cat food.* Edward William Lane (1801–1876), a British Orientalist who resided in Cairo, described a *cat garden originally endowed by the 13th-century Egyptian sultan Baibars,* whose *European contemporaries held a very different attitude towards cats, eating them or killing them under papal decrees.* Wilfred Thesiger, in his book The Marsh Arabs, notes that cats were allowed free entry to community buildings in villages in the Mesopotamian Marshes, and even fed.[ Aside from protecting granaries and food stores from pests, cats were valued by the paper-based Arab-Islamic cultures for preying on mice that destroyed books. For that reason, cats are often depicted in paintings alongside Islamic scholars and bibliophiles. Source WP.

Hypocrites, obviously you can't afford to keep all of them alive on the street and just neglect them to die from diseases and starvation somewhere. Their daily existence is full of suffering yet you don't even allow humane euthanasia and do nothing about their life. Is this how people justify abandoning and abusing domestic animals. Such a pity. I have no idea why youtube even recommended me such a video.
