Meet the street cats of Istanbul: How the city's four-legged locals were a Turkish highlight for a pair of snap-happy travellers

A pair of travellers' unusual holiday photos have shed light on one of Istanbul's less well-known sights - its omnipresent street cats.

Jürgen, from Germany, and Mike, from the U.S., spent 91 days in the Turkish city as part of a grand ambition to travel the world slowly, staying three months in each destination.

Describing the animals as a highlight of their stay, the pair describe on their blog how tourists were often distracted from the city's landmarks by mewling kittens.
