One of his cats is blind, and they love to hang out listening to birds sing together.

“His happiest moment when Veysel is at the window. Listening to the birds, getting fresh air is our favorite activity. I hang out an hour every day at the window with my angel.”

The kitties share a very strong bond with their human dad. They were all found in poor shape, and Duman took them off the streets and adopted them all.
