土耳其的貓和狗 / Turkey’s cats and dogs



在土耳其的街道上,除了土耳其人外,一定會遇見一些貓貓狗狗,大部份都是流浪的。而貓的比例比狗多得多,據這是因為在穆斯林教的一些和穆罕默德的故事中貓扮演了正面的角色,而且穆斯林據有種法:「如果你殺了一隻貓,你要建一座清真寺神才會原諒你」(來源:http://www.foxnews.com/world/2010/08/23/stray-cats-strut-istanbuls-streets-symbol-tradition-churning-metropolis/

Walking along the streets in Turkey, you’re bounded to come across some stray cats and dogs, and definitely more cats than dogs.  Apparently it’s because some Islam tales tell stories about cats and Mohammed, and cats were portrayed in a positive light, and it seems there is a popular saying goes: "If you've killed a cat, you need to build a mosque to be forgiven by God."

我在土耳其的三個星期從來沒有想過特別去拍貓貓狗狗,但回家整理相片的時候發現,原來自己無意中也拍了不少貓貓相,但狗狗相只有一張

I never really thought about taking photos of cats and dogs during my 3 weeks in Turkey, but when I got home, I noticed I’d taken a fair few cat photos, only 1 with dogs…

土耳其的有關部門針對流浪狗,對它們進行育手術,打預防針和載上電子追踪器以便管理。

Apparently the Turkish authorities perform sterilization operations, give them vaccinations and put electronic tags on stray dogs to help in manage them.
