"Modern domestic cats appear to have all originated in one of two places. The first was Anatolia, which roughly corresponds to modern-day Turkey."
Fast growing human population mainly concentrated in cities in Turkey do not leave enough space for the cats who are native inhabitants of the land of Anatolia. It is heartbreaking that in search of a safe home where they can keep themselves warm and protected, the cats often hide in the engines of the cars which brings a very tragic end to their lives.
Therefore, it is essential that the efforts for keeping the cat population under control should be supported by providing the safe living space for the sustainable number of cats who belong to this land. Despite the fact that local governments are responsible for the welfare of street cats in Turkey, the situation is far from providing the adequate living standards for them. Here is where volunteering for street animals play an important role in Turkey.
I have actively volunteered for the street cats of Turkey and dedicated the considerable amount of my time and effort for animal welfare in every possible format my best ability. Since I moved out of Turkey for my graduate studies in 2014, I have been feeling increasingly inadequate and guilty of not being able to do enough for the street cats of Turkey. As I am counting down to the last year of my twenties, I would like to ask for your support to make a combined contribution to building homes for the street cats of Turkey.
For this cause in mind, I will be training for my first half marathon, Oxford Half on October 7, 2018. It will be a massive milestone for me after the paragliding accident that gave me a human-made ankle in 2007. I have come from the days on a wheelchair during which I didn't know if I was ever going to be able to walk again to about a year ago I made a big lifestyle move into healthy living. I would be incredibly happy to have your support for my journey to help improve the lives of many more cats like me, as I also count myself a cat-like being.
