On the occasion of World Animal Day on October 4, Istanbul unveiled a sculpture in the likeness of Tombili, a cat that shot into fame early this year when a picture of him reclining on a sidewalk was widely circulated on the Internet. When Tombili —a Turkish word often used for chubby pets— died on August after a month-long mysterious illness, an online petition on change.org was started demanding a sculpture of Istanbul’s beloved cat which attracted more than a 17,000 supporters.
