Cat Jailed For Aiding Prisoners


An Israeli prison, The Nakab, located between Egypt and Israel has booked one cat in solitary confinement as punishment for its services and assistance to prisoners who are serving sentences in solitary confinement. According to the Israeli officers, the cat was aiding prisoners by moving light objects (i.e. letters, bread etc) between the cells of prisoners.

It turns out that the cat had been providing its services to prisoners for several months until it was exposed recently and so the prison administration decided to place the cat in solitary confinement – the same way they do to the prisoners. There are dozens of cats living between the cells and rooms of the Palestinian prisoners in several Israeli prisons and private prisons, and apparently the cats are trying to help them.
