Woman Disowns Cat For Being Gay


A middle-aged woman (names withheld) yesterday in Lafia, Nasarawa State, publicly disowned her cat whom she had kept as a pet for seven years for what she termed “an unnatural sexual behavior” which she finds disturbing and “a contradiction of the laws of nature.”

By this, the cat has made a record as the first cat to be so publicly declared gay and disowned by its owner.

The cat, named Bull, was alleged to be in the habit of making sexual advances only to other male cats in the house even though there are several other female cats.

Neighbours attested that none of the other cats born while the cat was in the house has it’s due colour, lending credence to the fact that it has not been able to mate with other female cats in its home or anywhere in the environ.

The cat owner who expressed a strong belief in the divine purpose of creating male and female of every creature to fulfil an ordained purpose of procreation said, “anybody interested in this gay cat can have it because I have no further use of it.”

The cat’s renunciation which attracted members of the public was however dramatic as no one wanted to take ownership of such a cat.

After its rejection, many residents of the area have been theonging the house located on Gboko Street, Tudun Gwandara area of Lafia, the state capital to see things for themselves

When LEADERSHIP visited the area people, especially youths, were seen in groups cracking joks about the incident.

      You only need to send a small fee by Western Union . . .

    This woman is clearly an idiot. For the good of humanity, she should just die.

  • Van Basten

    This is too funny.

  • mrwritesf

    LOVE that the cat’s name is “Bull”—just like the words comin’ out this FOOL’S mouth. HATE…in fact I WEEP, that this rag is what passes for high-caliber journalism in Nigeria.

  • GraphicTruth

    It would be just wonderful if Nigeria’s most influential newspaper hired a copy-editor.

    That, and if LEADERSHIP had nothing better to do than visiting the area people in response to this… you need to get better LEADERSHIP.

    Of course the fact that this seems to be a thing at all speaks to that too.

    She made me sick! No wonder her false religion brainwash her and she didnt read the bible very careful and investigated. Many people do not read the BIBLE. They just listen to the priests and their own words. Jesus himself warned about False prophets and false christian. Gay is not sin and Gay is not wrong. Some people say yes gay is sin and read the bible. No! The bible talked about Sodom and Gomorrah is mistranslated and misinterpreted. Sodom and Gomorrah are about everyone included Straight people made a dirty sex and sluts. Its wrong, yes. It didnt say specific gay only in Sodom and Gomorrah so what they teach was false. Gay is not SIN! PERIOD!

    I would adopted this cat since I am dog person. I feel bad for this cat. He need a love and attention. Nothing’s wrong with him being gay. SICKO some people who are cruel. Where is love ?!?!

    • Gryphonn

      Mate, just forget the Bible. It was written to influence the populous to bow down to a certain sector of society. The Priests! It is a work of fiction with no validity in todays world.

    It’s Nigeria and they are all backwards and I don’t give a you know what but these African nation are so infected with this Christian crap their minds are corrupted beyond stupidity. If there is any one person who would walk up to that reject kitty it would be Jesus Christ and would protect. This woman is stupid and godless and hell is her final resting place.

    • Gryphonn

      There is no hell and no god. Stop worrying.

    • Gullag

      Your mother is backwards to have had an imbecile like you,,,what gives you the right to judge an entire Nation and Continent where you have never set foot ? Your ignorance is appalling and i hope you get the mental help you so obviously need,

      • george1776

        Well then take your silly ass back there and enjoy yourself but I doubt you will and as for my having been there or the Continent of Africa well ass hole I’ve there several times and sadly you’re too stupid to note the corruption. So, like I stated take you gulag ass back and enjoy.

        • deathfish3000

          Wow George, you don’t really sound like the sharpest tool in the shed yourself.

  • Zarahti

    So how long until we see the follow up story relating that the cat has been stoned to death? That seems to de rigeur among backwards-ass religious fanatics.

    • Gryphonn

      It’s Nigeria. I am sure the cat will be stoned or hung. Bunch of homophobic nutters. Well, the government and half the population at least.

  • oblivion328

    Male cats tend to be indiscriminate humpers when in heat. It generally has nothing to do with sexual orientation.

    • Vierotchka

      Male cats do not go on heat, only female cats do. But male cats will have strong sexual urges at times due to testosterone surges. That is when they will start humping objects such as stuffed animal toys of the right size, living rabbits, and other things.

      • Denise

        I had a tiny bunny once that used to hump my cat whenever he got the chance. They were both gay, I guess, since they were both male.

  • Lucina Sandoval

    Is this actually an Onion story?

    • Gryphonn

      Sadly, no. It’s a real Nigerian news service

  • Kerrie64

    Nurture not nature perhaps?

  • Nick Mulgrave

    I assume that Bull still liked pussy right?

  • Gryphonn

    There are around 400 animals species that engage in homosexual behaviour. It’s not abnormal.

    • Vierotchka

      It is “abnormal”, or not normal, inasmuch as it is not the norm, but it is perfectly natural.

  • Stephen Jones

    “crazy cat lady does a crazy thing”

  • PsychoChick966

    Such a fabulous display of intellect. * rolls eyes * …and let me guess, the villagers have now stoned the cat to death.

  • Patti Milner

    Please contact me via my facebook account patti milner and I will adopt this cat gladly

  • Nealbo

    Okay, this one takes the cake.

  • Cassie Lyons

    He needs a loving home and needs to get neutered. Any updates on this cat?

    • Denise

      He won’t need to get neutered since he’s gay.

  • joe3eagles

    You’d think this is an Onion satirical piece, but it’s not. More religious dumbfuckery.

  • Pascaline Moret

    where is the cat , now?????? possibility to know it???
    i am sure somebody can adopt him, even in another country!

  • Derek Williams

    Why couldn’t they just miaow away the gay?

  • Dusty Rider

    I’ll take Bull in any day. I’ll take in Gays or Lesbians or Jews or Native Americans or Blacks or Mexicans… Any of the persecuted would be welcome in my home and shelter.

  • Makai

    So… she things EVERY CREATURE has a male and female counterpart…

    Let’s start by bringing biology class to her area, the problem will sort itself out.
