In Istanbul, there's a mosque where you can pray alongside cats. The Aziz Mahmud Hüdayi Mosque's imam Mustafa Efe has been letting stray cats since last year.

Mustafa calls the cats "guests" of the mosque and, as you can see, he's made them feel right at home.

One of the cats felt so safe and comfortable at the mosque, she decided it would be a good place to raise her young ones.

Mustafa had only kind words to say about the cats that surprised him during a Friday sermon.

"The kitty has found the heart of compassion and mercy," he wrote on Facebook.
