Cape Town – A Nigerian woman has reportedly disowned her cat of seven years for what she termed “an unnatural sex behaviour” which she finds disturbing.

According to the Leadership, the cat was alleged to be in the habit of making sexual advances only to male cats despite there being female cats in its home. 

The woman’s neighbours also attested that none of the other cats born while the cat was in the house had its due colour, thus, cementing the fact that it had not been able to mate with female cats in its 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 report said.

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