The Most Famous Cat in Istanbul Is Honored With His Own Statue

You might remember the various memes that hit the interwebs a little while ago when someone snapped a photograph of Tombili chilling on the steps of a street in Istanbul.

It didn’t take long for Tombili to become an internet legend, so it was fitting that when he passed away in August, he was honored in the real world as well. Now the feline’s lackadaisical pose has been eternalized in the form of a bronze statue that’s just been unveiled in the very spot where Tombili was originally photographed showing the world how to chill in style. It’ll forever be there to remind us that in this increasingly hectic world of ours, sometimes we need to take a moment to relax.
