The worst snowfall recently hit Istanbul, Turkey with 65 cm of snow falling in parts of the city. Normal life is paralysed, and hundreds of flights have been cancelled. The city is reeling from a deadly winter chill, and as the mercury levels are dipping low, the warmth of human kindness has endured.



The city has witnessed how animal lovers are doing to the best of their capacity to help keep the stray animals of the city safe and warm from chilly weather.



The Local business owners have not only opened their hearts but also their doors for stray animals. One such person is Selcuk Bayal.

Selcuk Bayal runs a small stationery shop and a cafe in Istanbul. He has transformed his small store into a temporary shelter for stray cats.

As reported by Dodo, Bayal said, “We are human, and these animals are entrusted to us by God. We are responsible for looking after them.”



Many have appreciated his efforts while few of his customers have criticised him. But rather than sending the cats away, he has responded by placing a board in the shop saying: “Those who are bothered by cats, do not shop here!”



He has lost a lot of potential customers, but this doesn’t bother him. Instead, he is busy helping the cats be cosy.

There are many other locals as well who have kept cardboard and food for dogs and puppies on the streets.

The residents are also putting food out for animals to ensure that they don’t go hungry.
