A Devout Cat Lives At The Hagia Sophia In Istanbul

The Hagia Sophia was built in Turkey 1,475 years ago, and is now a museum dedicated to preserving its history as both an Eastern Orthodox Cathedral and an Imperial Mosque (1453–1931). There remains a worshipper among the flood of tourists – a derpy cat named Gli. (Thanks, Ali) posted on
