Wordless{ish} Wednesday: The Sleepy Residents of Ephesus


*LINKY Below*

Recently my husband and I visited the amazing ruins of Ephesus, Turkey.

The site itself was enough to keep my interested for the better part of a day; however, it was the current inhabitants that I truly got a kick out of.

Everywhere you looked there was a cat sleeping on a column or sunning itself on an ancient mosaic floor.

They are clearly strays but they don’t seem to mind; they call ancient ruins their home and sleep all day…what a life!

The throngs of tourists didn’t phase them one bit.

They were clearly too relaxed to be bothered!
