Tombili, a Turkish word that he uses affectionately in reference to plump pets, was also the name of the most famous cat in the country.
The feline, very popular in the neighborhood of Ziverbey, in Istanbul, for his friendly and sociable behavior with neighbors
jumped to fame a few months ago on social networks, with the publication of a recumbent photograph as if it were a person in one of your favorite places on the street.
Last August, this mascot, considered a patrimony of Ziverbey's neighbors, died after a month of illness, according to the British newspaper The Independent.
the population that knew him in life wanted to give him a last tribute to avoid his forgetfulness. Thus, through a proposal from Change.org that collected more than 17,000 signatures
the neighborhood got the municipal authorities to charge a bronze sculpture of the animal in its favorite position to remember the cat on the step that made him a true celebrity.
