Famous cat passes away, so city honors him with a statue at his favorite spot

Meet Tombili, the chillest cat in Istanbul. Tombili’s spent his days lounging around the town, showcasing his laidback lifestyle and enviable calmness for all to see. Naturally, he was beloved by all the locals, and became a local (and Internet!) legend when passersby took pictures of him relaxin’ in the streets.

Unfortunately, Tombili passed away last August, but he will never be forgotten. To show their appreciation for their chubby feline friend, the locals decided to immortalize his resting image in bronze, building a statue right where he used to recline his kitty spine.

It really captures his likeness! The statue memorializes Tombili’s lackadaisical demeanor — the very picture of a cool cat at home in his favorite spot. It’s clear that Tombili was a true inspiration to everyone who came across him: sometimes we all need a reminder to take some time to sit around and enjoy the stuff around us.

The memorial opened last October 4th, and already people have been flocking to come pay their respects to this town fixture.

“You will live in our hearts. Mascot of our street, beloved TOMBILI lost his struggle for life after a month and closed his eyes to life on first of August,” wrote one of Tombili’s fans on a note near the statue.

Cat Dubbed The Most Beautiful Cat in the World

Coby the cat just might be the Internet’s – nay, the world’s – most beautiful cat. Try not to get lost in his eyes, I dare you. The young cat’s Instagram page has amassed nearly 300,000 followers since its inception in June 2015 and keeps growing day by day.

The British shorthair was adopted by Rebecca, who told Mashable, “I fell in love with his blue eyes and fluffy white coat. He fell asleep in my arms and the rest is history.”

Coby almost looks like a stuffed animal or some concoction made in Photoshop, but we assure you, he is real.

Coby is frequently featured in dashing outfits, seeming to fit his persona, as well as doing typical “cat things,” like making weird faces for no reason, crawling through tunnels, and looking pissed off.

Rebecca also revealed Coby isn’t like most cats. In fact, he loves water and bath time. His social media page reads that he loves “playing with my ducky in the tub.”

Awwww.
