A woman in Nigeria has “publicly disowned” her cat after seven years of happy snuggles because the cat, apparently, is gay. According to the Nigerian newspaper Leadership, Bull — who is, again, a cat — “was alleged to be in the habit of making sexual advances only to other male cats in the house even though” — even though! — “there are several other female cats.”

Despite the country’s notoriously oppressive anti-homosexuality laws for people, Bull is the first feline to be publicly renounced for being gay. Since his outing, he’s been banished from his former owner’s house and put up for adoption. “Anybody interested in this gay cat can have it because I have no further use of it,” the owner said. So far, though, no takers. At present, Bull’s fate remains unclear.
