       Tombili, the pudgy cat whose relaxing demeanor captured the hearts of fans worldwide, has been honored with a bronze statue in her home city of Istanbul, Turkey. 

       一只名为“Tombili”的小肥猫以其慵懒的姿态赢得了全世界粉丝的心。而在她的家乡土耳其伊斯坦布尔,人们也建了它的青铜像来纪念它。

       The cuddly feline — whose name is a Turkish word often used for chubby pets — was a beloved figure in the neighborhood of Ziverbey, the Daily Sabah reports. 

       据土耳其《沙巴日报》报道,这只惹人喜爱的喵星人是齐沃比街区的吉祥物,它的名字“Tombili”在土耳其语中是胖胖萌宠的常见名字。 

       "Tombili was a freely living cat, like most cats in Turkey," Batu Aksoy, one of the founders of the Anatolian Cat Project, told The Huffington Post in a Facebook message. "The community took care of her." While some media reports refer to Tombili as a "he," Aksoy said she was a female. 

       “Tombili是一只慵懒生活的猫,就像土耳其的大多数猫一样。”“安纳托利亚猫咪工程”创始人之一巴图·阿克索伊通过脸书网信息告诉《赫芬顿邮报》,“全社会都在照顾她。”虽然有些媒体说Tombili是一只公猫,阿克索伊说她是一只母猫。 

       Tombili shot to online fame after someone snapped a photo of her reclining outside. It's unclear when she became known outside of her local neighborhood, but the photo appears at the top of a 9Gag post from February 2015. 

       Tombili因为一张慵懒倚在人行道上看风景的照片而在网络爆红。虽然不知道照片是不是在她所在的街区拍的,不过这张照片依然在2015年2月在9Gag图片网站上登顶。 

       When she died in August after an illness, someone put up a poster in the neighborhood as a tribute. But a cat as awesome as Tombili deserved more than just a poster. 

       在她8月份因病离世之后,有人在她生前所在的街区贴上海报作为纪念。但是像Tombili这样可爱的猫咪,理应得到比一张海报更多的纪念。 

       The Anatolian Cat Project — an educational community for cat lovers — launched a petition asking that the neighborhood have a statue erected to commemorate the popular feline. Artist Sevalahin stepped up to the challenge, and the bronze sculpture was unveiled on Tuesday — World Animal Day. 

       “安纳托利亚猫咪工程”是一个爱猫人的教育社区,他们发起了一项请愿,希望这个街区能够立雕像来纪念这只人气超高的猫咪。艺术家萨瓦尔·萨希因接下了这个挑战,这座青铜像在世界动物保护日揭幕。 

       Tombili was a "very friendly cat," Aksoy said, which unfortunately may have led to some of her health problems. 

       阿克索伊说,Tombili是一只“非常亲人的猫咪”,这可能很不幸地导致了她的健康问题。 

       "[The] neighborhood loved her so much and used to feed her a lot," he added. 

       “街坊邻居都太喜欢她了,所以喂她吃的东西太多了。”他补充说。 

       And she seems to have gotten along better with humans than with other lines. 

       与其他物种比起来,她与人类相处得更好。 

       "Tombili was [a] very proud cat and did not like [to] spend her time with other cats," Aksoy said. "Because of obesity, she could not move much, so preferred calmly to lie on [the] sidewalk."

       “Tombili是一只骄傲的猫咪,不喜欢和别的猫一起玩儿。”阿克索伊说,“因为太胖,她也不怎么能活动,所以她喜欢冷静地在人行道边上趴着。” 

       Free-roaming cats like Tombili are a common sight in Istanbul, where the city's residents offer food, shelter and care to the resident rodent-killers. The region's love for cats has roots in Islam — the Prophet Mohammad is said to have adored cats, legendarily opting to cut a sleeve off of his robe, rather than disturb his feline companion sleeping on top of it. 

       像Tombili这样自由漫步的猫咪是伊斯坦布尔一道日常的风景,这里的人们给这些鼠类天敌提供食物和住处。这一地区对猫咪的喜爱源自伊斯兰教的传统——据说先知穆罕默德就很喜欢猫,传说他的爱猫曾经在他长袍的袖子上睡觉,为了不打扰它,穆罕默德把袖子剪掉了。
