The photo challenge for this week is “new”. After poking around my stash of photos, I didn’t come up with much. So I decided, what the heck, everyone loves kittens. So my offering for the challenge is a photo of baby kittens I saw at the Eyup Mosque in Istanbul. Cats are everywhere in this city. Apparently, the Prophet had a fondness for cats and as such, cats are respected by Muslims. You’ll even find them inside places such as the Hagia Sophia or just lounging around the streets of the city. They are well looked after, too – people leave out food and water for them. Not too shabby a life!
