‘Kedi’ a cat movie for everyone

Kathleen Williams-Miller
Weldon, a sweet Mastiff/Lab mix, is eight years old. He was surrendered to CAPS because his dad was placed in an assisted living home. He is looking for a home where he will be loved and appreciated. Weldon is shy but loves people and most dogs. He is lonely without his dad and would like to find a friend who would love and protect him. Please come out and meet him.

OK, I’m sure you are thinking that I have finally flipped my lid and have spent hours exploring the Internet for cat videos. Let me put that fear to rest because I just happened to stumble upon the movie “Kedi” recently in San Francisco at an artsy theater.

“Kedi” is an award-winning documentary about the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for centuries. Istanbul is a port city, and ships from all over the world dock there. Many cats who accompanied the ships chose to put down roots in the city.

The magnificent mix of cats ranges from Norwegian forest cats, ginger cats, black cats, white cats and rare exotic mixes. All of the cats roam freely and are extraordinary beings who bring joy and purpose to the people they choose.

The cats live between the world of free and tamed cats. It is amazing to watch the cats scavenging from dumpsters, living in abandoned buildings, and some being cared for by the entire community.

I found the movie beautiful, moving and wonderfully uplifting. It is subtitled, so it’s great for the hearing impaired. You can access a trailer for the film at http://www.kedifilm.com.

I’m not a film critic but this movie leaves you with a feeling of hope. I think it is purrfect!
