Two years ago, Turkish pianist Sarper Duman rescued a horribly abused cat from the cruel streets of Istanbul. Duman tweets:
His name is Fevzi. He couldn’t walk because he was kicked on the streets, his rear legs didn’t work. He went under cortisone and laser treatment for a long time. Then he healed and started walking again. Now he’s this cute, lovebug of a cat.
And unlike some humans who repay kindness with indifference or punishment, Fevzi the cat repays Duman’s kindness with gratitude and love.
According to Animal Channel in February 2018, Duman lives with nine cats in Istanbul, a city “famous for having a huge stray cat population” estimated to number 125,000.
All his cats are rescues from the streets whom, like Fevzi, Duman had found injured. One of the cats is a blind ginger named Veysel. Veysel and the other cats love to listen to Duman play the piano. As he put it:
I always play piano at my home almost every night and whenever I sit to play, all my cats come around, they hang out with me and they love to sleep around the piano. They are my life, they are my heart, they are my peace.

“Sandy had lost both front feet to hunters’ leg-hold traps. The sweet little dog will soon have his professionally made prosthetic legs, which our vet is ordering from the US. We can’t wait! But, for now, he’s very happy, much loved by Bob Chau, and, apart from missing two front feet, he’s very healthy.
Huge thanks to Ross Td of Taiwan Adventures hiking specialists for getting us up and down safely, and to Lazy Lease for getting us up and down safely, and to Lazy Lease for calling in the rescue when she spotted Sandy and his appalling injuries while hiking in that very remote location.
And thanks to Sandy for making a very difficult rescue much easier than it would have been if he was bigger or less friendly!”

A kind woman in Thailand, Orawan Kaewla-iat, feeds the strays near her home to help homeless dogs.
Unlike humans, where no good deed goes unpunished, the dogs are grateful to Orawan for her kindness.
One pup named Tua Plu comes to Orawan’s place every day with his mom looking for food.
But Tua Plu doesn’t come empty-handed. He always brings a gift in exchange for the food. The gift is usually a leaf or sometimes a piece of paper, but it’s the thought that counts.
In the video below, you can see Tua Plu approach with a twig in his mouth, then places the twig down by the bowl of rice before he starts eating.
There is also a longer video of Tua Plu carrying a yellow leaf in his mouth for several minutes. When he is offered a snack, the pup drops the leaf and takes the snack in his mouth, leaving the leaf on the ground, which shows the pup meant the leaf as a gift to the kind woman who feeds him.
