Meet the Cats of Istanbul + VoCATulary

I’ve just found the best guides to lead us through Istanbul: Turkish cats♥

And in case you want to adopt one, you may need the following voCATulary:
kitten=yavru kedi
to purr=(kedi) mırlamak
to keep a cat= kedi beslemek
cat food=kedi maması
sandbox=kedi kumluğu

And some expressions:
cat in gloves catches no mice=eldiven giymiş kedi fare yakalayamaz
like a cat with nine lives= kedi gibi dokuz canlı
when the cat is away the mice will play= kedi gidince meydan farelere kalır
has the cat got your tongue?= dilini kedi mi yuttu?

“Nine Lives – Cats in Istanbul is a documentary feature focusing on the millions of street cats that live in one of the world’s most populated cities and the people who love and care for them. It is a profile of an ancient city and its unique people, seen through the eyes of the most mysterious and beloved animal humans have ever known, the Cat.”
