Jews For Cats

As the winter comes, and the cold, harsh weather arrives without any further notice, we often ask ourselves, “Where can I buy the best winter coat?”

We may organize our winter closet. 

We may even donate an extra coat to a friend.

But how many of us are looking out for the innocent, mute, creatures, who are called cats?

I ask this because many stray cats die a painful death during the winter, whether it is from hunger or the cold, cold weather.

Some, sadly, even die from poisoning. 

Right now, I would like to talk about what we can do for all cats, especially now, as it’s growing so cold. 

You see, the winter is one of the hardest seasons for cats. 

Many of them freeze to death. 

And guess what?

Cats do have feelings just like us humans. 

It’s true.

In a study that was conducted by Charles Darwin, he concluded that cats do indeed have emotions. 

The part of a cat’s brain that is responsible for emotions looks just like the part of the human brain responsible for the same thing. 

This means they can feel sad and alone. 

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not here to tell you to love cats. 

But I am asking that whatever you can do for them, especially now in the cold weather, no matter how big or small, please do it. 

What are some things we can do? 

Personally, I leave out food for the cats every single night. 

I also leave a mobile shelter outside, which you can see in the photo. 

So, yes, leaving food outside, even a can of tuna, is good enough. 

You can buy a shelter for them for outside. 

Of course, If you don’t have the time or the money, then you don’t have to. 

But, you could do something simple, such as leave your leftover food outside for the cats, instead of throwing it out.

You can report someone who is being cruel to cats. 

You can really take small steps. 

Even if you don’t like cats, just do it for nature’s sake. 

Or just do it for God. 

These innocent creatures can’t speak for themselves, but they do feel emotions just like me and you. 

Let’s save them, one Jew at a time. 

What can you do for the cats?
