The Plight of Practical Cats

The cat above? That'll run you $10,000 as it's no ordinary cat. It's an offspring of the African serval, which is deemed a wildcat. As such, it's also illegal to own in New York City. (For more information, check out this article from the New York Times) Fearing that they'll get lose, attack infants and impregnate high-schoolers, the "Savannah Cat" gets a one-stop trip to the gas chamber if it's found in your apartment. Granted, I don't have the room to keep a goldfish in my apartment, so having a 35 pound cat around would force me to sleep in the trash chute. But they're out there and they're being round-up in a kitty Kristallnacht.

If that isn't enough, what happens if you have a cat that looks like a Savannah? Such is the case of someone I know whose neighbors reported them (and the cat) to the city. This cat was adopted from a pound, has papers from their vet stating it isn't a Savannah, but the city is still sending out an "expert" to make a determination.

It's true, the world has gone insane. Keeping alligators and tigers in your apartment is one thing. But ratting out a neighbor because he has what looks like a wildcat living in his apartment is something else entirely. As strange as this is, he's looking for a "pet attorney" to defend his (and his cat's) claim. If you know of anyone, send me their info via ivoshandor at yesbutnobutyes dot com. Thanks!

Now, who wants some dalmatian mice? These things are all over my apartment.
