Roaming the streets of Istanbul in their thousands, the feline cast we encounter in this utterly enchanting documentary have no master, no fixed abode and, of course, no doubts about their importance to the people of the Turkish capital. Some fend for themselves – scavenging around – while others rely on a variety of good-natured humans for shelter and sustenance. Director Ceyda Torun said, “Cats have been a part of Istanbul for thousands of years, and so, everyone who grows up in Istanbul or lives in Istanbul has a story about a cat. Stories that are memorable; sometimes scary, sometimes spiritual, but always very personal.”
