SAMSUN, TURKEY – The northern province of Samsun, Turkey, an area devoted entirely to housing stray cats has been built.
It is referred to as the “cat town.” This facility was founded within a 10, 000-kilometer forest area that is located within a municipal animal shelter. The Samsun Metropolitan Municipality built the facility over a course of a two year period, in order to provide a safe and comfortable home environment for over fifty once homeless cats.
The animal shelter rescues cats from the street and then spays and neuters them. The cats are then brought to live inside of the cat town. The town doesn’t discriminate on age or on the health status of any cat and even takes in cats with special needs.
Hüseyin Aydin is the resident vet and manager of this animal shelter and aids the sick cats which are living within the facility. Aydin ensures the cats are treated before they are released to live with the others.
The town also has a series of bridges, walking tracks and bungalows for cats to live in either alone or if they so choose, with a group of other cats. The key objective of the team at this terrific facility is that the cats can live out the rest of their lives happy and healthy.
Aydin suggests that the facility is much like a five-star hotel for felines. Anything that the cats could possibly need for their life or their health is provided by the facility. Although they are currently housing only 50 cats, Aydin says that they can definitely expand the area to house more in the future.
