Neo-Nazi Kitties Held Hostage

Neo-Nazi Kitties Held Hostage

Today In International Cat News: An animal shelter in Zwickau, Germany is demanding more than $1,300 for care of two kitty cats owned by an alleged neo-nazi serial murderer. The felines in question, Heidi and Lily, belong to Beate Zschäpe, a member of the Nationalsozialistischer Untergrund, a neo-nazi terror cell suspected of a series of racially motivated murders with as many as 10 victims.

When Ms. Zschäpe turned herself in to Zwickau police in November, the cops placed the pussies with the Zwickauer Tierschutzverein animal shelter and paid for 3 days of food and lodging. The local police say the balance should be paid by the Bundeskriminalamt, known as the BKA, Germany’s equivalent of the FBI, since they are now in charge of the case.

It is likely Ms. Zschäpe can’t find another cat sitter, since the other two members of her terror cell committed suicide after robbing a bank. The shelter doesn’t care who pays the bill and, we suspect, neither do the cats.
