From Persia come not only the carpets… also the cats, famous for their long fur, sweet look and fluffy tail.

But where are they? The famous Persian cats?!?! Due to is high price certainly only at home of wealthy family, away from the city streets, bazaars and markets, where stray cats roam relatively freely.

These stray cats, fed by the inhabitants show a little shy and distrustful, without losing their natural instinctive curiosity common to all cats.

The highest concentration of these urban felines was in the bazaar of Tabriz, where one of the many caravancerais, were many men gathering for talking or just sitting in the shade provided by the trees. The cats wander around with the full confidence of who dominates the place.

Soon you can see the reason for such concentration of cats, with the arrival of a man carrying a bag with leftover meat, which totally destabilize the peaceful courtyard, with cats dispute the food among themselves. Chaos that don’t last for long, with the cats laying down at the sun and the caravancerai returning to previous peaceful atmosphere.
