There is a love for cats and then there is a hoarding obsession of cats. It would seem a woman in Israel prefers 550 cats to human companionship, as well as potentially risking the health and welfare of too many damn cats, as well as her own, due to a financial responsibility of all those cats.
In southern Israel, a man went to the rabbinical court to seek a divorce from his wife due to her 550 cats, which the woman refused to part with any of them. He claimed that life with his wife became unbearable when she took in 550 cats.
He complained to the courts, in Beersheba, that cats blocked his entrance to the bathroom, prevented him from cooking his meals, and stole his food when he sat down to eat. He also complained that the cats refused to sleep on the floor, preferring the comfortable bed, so he was unable to sleep at night. All those cats were in the way of his life and marriage, making it impossible for the couple to have any intimacy.
The courts requested the couple reconcile their marriage and the couple said they did try, but the wife refused to give up any of her cats. She allegedly stated that she rather part with her husband than part with any of her cats.
The couple went their separate ways, while the wife kept all her cats. I guess she preferred Bastet over Yahweh, but the poor man will have nightmares about cats for the rest of his life, as well as refuse to date a woman who cares for even one cat.
