weather = depends on your personal pleasure, im more of a winter guy and im not living in the snowy region of turkey. But let's be fair, you can find warm places and cold places in turkey so this variation is good but still i don't think it's a W thing, lot's of countries have this feature too.
cats everywhere= Im sure it looks fascinating seeing "istanbul cats" or "cat kingdom" type of videos on youtube. But in reality, that's not exactly how it works. As in the videos, a small part of the cats are taken care of by the local people, but most of them do not live such a good life. Im not saying the local people are all responsible for this. It's just impossible for them to take care of such a dense cat population. They live a painfully short life, spending every day in a rush to find food, eating from garbage, struggling with diseases. These animals don't deserve this. Not everything is as wonderful as it looks in the videos.
beaches= yeah but you can find amazing beaches in some other countries too.
