10catsinTurkey is on a distinguished road
Default I am stuck because I have cats

Hi all,

I just want to share my story because only cat lovers can understand my struggle. Before I came to Turkey I always had cats, but when they passed away I told myself never to have cats again, because of the pain I felt when they died. Now, 8 years later, I gathered 10 cats around me, all former street cats. The streets of Turkey are full of cats, there are too many of them, and I am one of the foreigners who feeds them and catches them to get them spayed. My eyes always catches a cat in need, as if they throw themselves in front of me when I walk by.

Now about my struggle: I don't want to live in Turkey anymore, for several reasons, but the main reason is that I miss my family. I am homesick.

The problem is that I am not rich, I don't earn enough to save money. In order to achieve my goal, going back to my home country. I need to get passports for all my cats, I need transport for all my cats and I need a big enough buffer to rent a place in my home country.

If I would not have been a cat person, I would not have had 10 cats, and then nothing would have stopped me to move from here.

Now, maybe some of you would think: then find a new home for your cats. But that is something that's nearly impossible in Turkey, the reason that there are so many street cats, is because most of the Turkish people have different ideas about animals, the last few years it has been changing in a positive way but they have a long way to go. So, finding them a new home in Turkey is not possible, and since it's also impossible for me to throw them onto the streets (like a few pple told me) I am stuck because I am a cat person.

First of all, i'd like to thank you on behalf of all the cats for loving them! They're the most beautiful creatures on Earth. Now, as far as your problem is concerned, have you tried finding people there, who love cats too and give them to those people? I see there's been a year, since you started this topic, so please keep us updated for what has happened!!
