A dead cat that became a worldwide meme has been honoured with his own statue in Istanbul
‘Tombili’, a rotund cat beloved by Istanbul’s Ziverbey neighbourhood, has been commemorated by the city authorities after local demand for a tribute to his memory. Tombili - a Turkish word often used for chubby pets - was known by residents of Ziverbey, part of the district of Kadıköy, for his nonchalant demeanour towards people who wanted to play with him. The cat became world famous earlier this year after a photo of him reclining in one of his favourite spots on the pavement was shared thousands of times on social media.

World Animal Day and the statue dedication today means this won’t be held back for Caturday.

”Tombili” means “chubby”, apparently. Just what it says on the tin… :-D
