When a young girl from Istanbul found a kitty by a dumpster, her heart melted when she saw the condition she was in. Although this poor kitten was disfigured, dirty and terribly malnourished, the young girl knew she had to help and took her home. She persuaded her father to pay for the vet bills and in time an amazing transformation took place. This kitten had already won a place in the girl’s heart so there was only one thing left to – give her a name. She decided on Gülümser, which means “she who smiles”. The two now have an inseparable bond.
