A middle-aged woman (names withheld) publicly disowned her cat which she had kept for seven years as a pet, yesterday in Lafia, Nasarawa state.
She stated her reason was due to its “unnatural sexual behavior” which she finds disturbing and “a contradiction of the laws of nature.” And by this, the cat has made record as the first cat to be declared publicly gay and disowned by its owner.
According to the owner, the cat named bull is alleged to be in the habit of making sexual advances only to the male cats in the house even though there are several other female cats.
Leadership Newspapers reports:
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.

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