Gay Cat In Nigeria Is Publicly Disowned By His Owner

A woman in Nigeria has disowned her seven-year-old cat for displaying “unnatural sexual behavior” when it made repeated sexual advances towards other male cats, the Nigerian newspaper Leadership reports.

The woman, who declined to give her name, told the paper she became concerned when the animal seemed to be attracted “only to other male cats in the house even though there are several other female cats.”

She felt the frisky feline’s actions were “a contradiction of the laws of nature.”

Neighbors of the woman confirmed that the cat, indeed, had a history of acting gay.

The newspaper also reports that this is the first time a cat has been “so publicly declared gay and disowned by its owner.”

“Anybody interested in this gay cat can have it because I have no further use of it,” the woman told the paper.

So far there have been no takers. It’s unclear what the fate of the cat will be.

The woman’s public rejection of her cat comes after Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Jonathan, signed a bill declaring that gay people could be imprisoned for up to 14 years for showing public displays of affection.

      What if they jailed all the stupid people for 14 years? She should not be allowed to have any pets.

      “A contradiction of the laws of nature”? What does she think, an older cat “recruited” him over drinks after he stopped going to church? Moron.

      Didn’t I tell you that women are the biggest homophobes? I have said time and again that women fear male homosexuality because it proves that men are superior to women. It’s a gender thing.

      Many liberal American women fear male homosexuality as much as do conservative women. They particularly fear it if it exists in men who also find women sexually attractive.

      I am glad the cat was ‘just’ disowned and not killed and then paraded around like a trophy.

      Same sex attraction exists in both animal and vegetal worlds. This should be publicized more often as many conservatives point out that it only exists in mankind.

      @ouragannyc: Usually, the lazy phobes just say unnatural. Now it’s “a contradiction of the laws of nature.”

      Actually, some of the most vicious hate crimes committed against the LGBT community have been by straight men. Most straight women may not like the idea of a good-looking man who turns out to be gay but they don’t lose sleep over it. They just chuck it up and move on. While I’m not implying women can’t be homophobic I don’t think it’s as bad as you and jimbryant believe it is. Many women are more fascinated by why good-looking men don’t want a woman rather than whom they prefer to sleep with

      @balehead: It’s generally women that dress like hoes and/or expect men to pamper them as queens. Basically they love the traditional roles that men and women have. Gay men obviously don’t fall into that and are therefore looked down upon.

      This article may have some humor to it but when I think of Nigeria I think of the mistreatment of homosexuals and the intolerance of Christians by many.

      Is the cat in the picture the actual cat from the story?

      I would be proud to have a gay cat! Unfortunately he’s been turned out into the streets by another uncaring parent. Hope he’ll be OK.
