Looks like cat lovers are the same, no matter what part of the world they live in.
Recently, Israeli Agriculture Minister Uri Ariel proposed to rid Israel of its’ stray cats by kicking them out of the country.
You see, Ariel feels TNR is not Biblical, because it prevents cats from following God’s laws to “be fruitful and multiply.” So he decided instead that Israel should dump the cats who have already followed God’s edict elsewhere. The plan is to have all cats of one gender placed in sanctuary in some other country.
But cat lovers are fighting back with a vengeance.
Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni posted this photo to Twitter:
Left-wing Meretz party leader Zahava Gal-On has called for deportation of the hardliner Ariel instead of the cats.
And security officials had to step up Ariel’s security detail after threats were made against his life. You think one of those threats came from these guys?
So far no country has volunteered to take on Isreal’s cats. Maybe because they have cat problems of their own?
Sorry Uri. Looks like God isn’t going to let you dump this problem on somebody else; you gotta deal with it yourself.
