Even if you never visited Istanbul, you probably have seen tons of pictures of him relaxing on benches and sidewalks throughout the town. No one knows if this lazy cat had a home of his own, but everyone in the neighborhood loved him and kept him well fed (obviously).
Sadly, Tombili (meaning "Chubbel" according to Google translate) became famous late in his life and passed away from an unknown illness in August. In his memory though, a petition started spreading online asking the city to errect a statue in Tombili's honor. The statue will be officially unveiled on October 4, but as you can see, it's already looking lazy and chill -just the way Tombili would have wanted it.
