Felines and canines set to get broader protections in the country.
“Cats” is based on British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hugely-popular stage musical and features a star-studded cast including Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, James Corden, Idris Elba, Jennifer Hudson and Rebel Wilson.
Some 30 felines were brought on board a train in Gifu Prefecture by an NGO to organise the "purfect" Sunday commute. The event was held so more people adopt and fewer cats end up killed in efforts to reduce the stray population.
Researchers say that cats have been domesticated for more than 10 millennia. A new study of cat skeletons traced their journey from their native home in Middle East to various places around the world with their fellow humans.
Turkish filmmaker Ceyda Torun lived in Istanbul before moving overseas with her family. She never lost her fondness for the city or the cats, however, as her first feature documentary "Kedi," a mischievous, loving and philosophical film, shows.
In Turkey there are countless street animals and many are well-loved and cared for. A new draft law wants to make sure the legal framework to protect them is solid.
