The teputable cat is recognized and honored with his own statue… Learn more below…

Meet Tombi, a beloved cat that lives in the neighborhood and has won the hearts of many people in Istanbul thanks to his laid-back and unflappable demeanor. It is unknown if Tombi had a house of his own, but everyone in the community cherished him despite his portly appearance and considered him a friend. After random people took a picture of him in a casual position while he was out walking around town and uploaded it online, he quickly became a viral hit.

Meet Tombi, a beloved cat that lives in the neighborhood and has won the hearts of many people in Istanbul thanks to his laid-back and unflappable demeanor. It is unknown if Tombi had a house of his own, but everyone in the community cherished him despite his portly appearance and considered him a friend. After random people took a picture of him in a casual position while he was out walking around town and uploaded it online, he quickly became a viral hit.

Residents of Istanbul have remarked that he seems like the kind of person who would like lounging about and watching the world go by. In addition to this, he maintained a calm demeanor and a carefree attitude toward individuals who wanted to adore, cuddle, and play with him. Whenever a random person asked to take a picture with him, he was more than willing to strike his trademark posture and smile for the camera.

Tombi was taken from this world by a mysterious sickness in the month of August. Soon after he passed away, the community erected a statue of Tombi in the location where he had spent most of his time relaxing as a way to express their gratitude for their fat feline buddy.

Now, the stance of the Tombi has been preserved for all time in the shape of a bronze statue, which was unveiled on October 4th, 2016, in celebration of World Animal Day. With its own statue, it will always be there to serve as a constant reminder to every one of Tombi.

One of Tombi’s followers penned a letter, which was then translated on Reddit and left at his favorite location before the statue of Tombi was installed there. The note said, “You shall live in our hearts. After fighting for his life for a month, our neighborhood’s beloved TOMBI finally gave up the fight and passed away on August 1st.
