Unfortunately, mosques in this country were not opened to non-Muslims. I could only visit their courtyards and watch inside from the outside. Yet the regulations were not enforced to cats.

When I was standing at the entrance of a mosque and watching the inside, I saw a cat walking inside. It was walking slowly toward the entrance as if it finished doing sightseeing. If it was possible, I wanted to ask the cat about the interior. It was said that Muhammad loved cat.
