She climbed the counter, drooling over the meat in front of her.Korkmazer gave the defenseless cat some leftover meat since he felt bad for her. He fell in love with the cat right away, and fortunately, it wasn’t their only encounter.

Yesim the cat continued to visit Korkmazer’s store for food, and she even brought her newborn kitten.

He couldn’t resist them every time.

“She would stand on two legs, look at the meat on the counter, and ask for meat. She started to come to ask for food five or six times a day, standing on two legs,” the man recalled. “She wanted mostly spleen, heart, kidney, and loved beef.”

Her kitty continued to visit the meat shop for snacks after Yesim passed away. Because of Korkmazer’s love for Yesim, he actually named his shop after her.

He named it the Yesim Meat Gallery.

The sweet ritual didn’t end with Yesim and her kitty. The generosity of the butcher store owner seems to have reached other stray cats and even stray canines as well.
