Tombili, the famous cat in Istanbul, spent his days sitting around the town, showing off his stress-free life and laidback lifestyle.
There is no doubt that he was loved by the residents. Tombili even became an internet sensation after a passerby took photos of him just relaxing in the streets and shared it online.
Sadly, he passed away but his memories will never be forgotten.
To honor him and show their appreciation for their famous furry animal, locals immortalized his resting image in bronze.
The city honors its chubby feline by building a statue exactly at his favorite spot!
The statue, which captures his likeness, memorializes Tombili’s relaxed appearance. It is evident that he became a true inspiration to people who saw him!
Life is hard and it will always be. Sometimes, we need a reminder to just breathe and relax. Enjoy things around us and relieve stress by doing the things we love.
Get a cold beverage, sit and watch the streets or nature! Right, Tombili?
People have been flocking to the memorial to pay their respects to the feline.
