even if she’s a buddhist who’s actually your dead mother.
A German bank robber had his request for his cat to visit him in jail denied this week. Peter Keonig, a Buddhist, claimed he couldn’t live without Gisela–especially since she is the reincarnation of his dead mother.
“In turning down the kitty-plea, the court said they respected religious freedom, but that there’s no proof that cat is in fact Keonig’s mother reborn, the Telegraph reported. The court did note he would be able to write the cat, but there’s no indication his mother retained her reading skills after transitioning to feline form.”
Good job, German court.
