Happy family...these two are part of an extended "family" of stray cats and dogs that used to live in the little fishing harbour of Inciralti, outside Izmir. I hope they're still there.

I was really attracted by the thumbnail, especially when I saw that it was taken in Turkey (the photo canīt deny that it was taken in Turkey because of the "Efes" log on the tarp!) I have often been to Turkey, and I have met a lot of stray cats and even more stray dogs (one of which lives with me in Austria now).
Itīs nice to see that they seem to get along well - well, at least when the dog is sleeping. When the dog girl came to my house the first weeks the cats ran away from her because she was hunting them. Well, food was rare on the waterfront - the dogsī were reliant to the mercy of the tourists. In winter, there arenīt any tourists, so cats .... well, you can imagne the rest. (Now, they became good buddies, by the way)
The soft winter light in this photo is very appealing. The contrast between the warm tones of the animalsī furs and the blue underground is also really nice.
Where are you now? I remember that you were once teaching English in Turkey ...
