This Fat Street Cat Just Got His Own Memorial Statue and It’s Making Locals Ridiculously Happy

hen it comes to American pet owners, there seems to be a pretty clear line drawn between two camps: dog and cat. Both animals are adorable and have standout traits. Sometimes it does seem like dog owners tend to dominate — think dog parks, and that little saying that implies they're "man's best friend."

But in other parts of the world, cats may just have the edge.

As it turns out, one country that seems to admire the feline set is Turkey. A very chubby cat stole the hearts of everyone in Istanbul's Ziverbey neighborhood, and sadly, he passed away recently. But what locals did to honor their deceased friend is totally heartwarming — and hilarious.
