Selfless man known as “the cat man of Aleppo” risks his life in a war zone to care for over 200 abandoned cats

Top post

The Syrian city of Aleppo is now probably one of the most dangerous places on our planet. While many residents left their homes to escape the war, one person stayed and cared for hundreds of stray and abandoned cats.

This man has earned the name Aleppo Cat Man. When people fled the bombings, they left their animals with him because they knew he loved cats. When the war began to get worse, a larger number of animals began to be brought to him.

These helpless animals needed food and protection, and Mohammed helped them with great joy and love. He had only 20 cats at the beginning, but a year later, the number of cats in his shelter exceeded one hundred. Mohammad relates: “One day a little girl brought a cat, her parents had to travel to Turkey, and they sent me to me. They knew it was a shelter for cats. The girl started crying when she gave me the cat. The next day, I photographed the cat and accompanied him to a photograph. He wrote to me that he missed the cat and asked me to make a promise when they returned to them.”

By the time all his friends left Aleppo, the cats had since become the only friends of Mohammed in the city. “A merciful person will be merciful to all living things,” he believes. “And I won’t leave them, no matter what happens.” At the same time, cats are not enough for Mohammad. He takes an active part in rescue operations throughout the besieged city. On the Nobel Peace Prize Facebook page, there are photographs of him pulling children out of blown-up buildings, carrying people out of the ruins, and even feeding the sick.
