Felines to have their own village in Turkey’s northwest

The northwestern province of Çanakkale is set to become home to a special cat village where hundreds of felines will live, be taken care of, and available for adoption.

Çanakkale, which served as a battlefield during World War I, will host the feline village on an area spanning 600 square meters in the neighborhood of Esenler, the governor’s office said in a statement on Dec. 21.

The village features feeding and watering units for the cats, along with bungalow-style cat houses.

Some 200 cats will live in the village when the project is complete, the statement said.

The settlement will serve as a shelter for stray cats, especially ones that are sick, after they receive treatment from veterinarians at the village and get neutered.

The cats in the village will be put up for adoption by locals, the statement added.

The village will open once the full-service feline facility is ready for its new cat residents to move in.
