Winter recognized her as Fezgin, a local cat who happily lives on the streets in his neighborhood in Istanbul, Turkey.

Winter snapped a couple photos and posted them on Catspotting, a private Facebook group, where her break-in got lots of attention.

He’s sure that if she needs the warmth, she’ll show up on her own.
“She’ll be back, I’m sure,” Winter said. “Like all cats in Istanbul, she’s the boss.”
