After that initial sighting, Tatli kept searching for the cat, desperately wanting to help him. She found him again a few times and even managed to get close to him, but he always escaped, too scared to realize that she was trying to help him. Eventually, he stopped coming around, and Tatli always wondered what happened to him. A few months later, he reappeared, and unfortunately, his condition had gotten so much worse.
“In April 2015, we saw him again; this time his health got worse and [he] had a broken leg and did not have energy to struggle anymore,” Tatli said. “I still have no idea how he survived, found food and water [and] avoided cars on that busy neighborhood.”
