Cat culture thrives in Istanbul

As the basketball championship starts in Turkey, cats will get a publicity boost; since famous Van cat, or bascat, is the mascot.

Cat culture thrives in Istanbul

This month, cats will get a publicity boost when the world basketball championships begin in Istanbul and three other Turkish cities. The official mascot is “Bascat,” a white cat with one blue eye and one green eye, similar to an unusual breed native to the eastern city of Van.

I forgot what basketball is living in UK. They never transmit a thing on basketball, volleybal, hockey, instead they adore ckricket and rugby that are played only in former colonies. {#emotions_dlg.razz} Silly English.

You can´t call rugby boring though. I watch it whenever it is on Dutch tv (or when I can get the BBC )

 

I really wonder if the popularity of the cat will change outside of Turkey because of the basketball thing. I doubt it I think it is such an odd choice for a mascot. Cats seem so... non-basketbally.

Rugby isnt boring, esp. when you see those bunch of muscles running round the field fighting for a huge egg.

At the first glance me too thought of the same thing that cat isnt a good mascot for basketball, but its a relative of leopards, lampards, tigers and lions. Then why not?

I though maybe a giraffe, but those aren´t native to Turkey... I can´t think of any tall Turkish animals...
