A black cat named 'Mike', who successfully sued his former owner for not recognizing that he is in fact a white dog trapped inside the wrong body with the wrong colored skin, has died.
The law suit, which was filed last week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, stated that Mike's former owner was: Transphobic, Racist, Unsympathetic, Cruel, Bullying and Selfish. Mike, who was 2 (14 years in cat age) was awarded $10,000,000. The case was brought to court by Mike's new owner, on behalf of the cat.
"If a man can say he is a woman, and a white woman claim that she is a black woman; then it is perfectly acceptable for a cat to claim he is a dog (in a cats body) and white (even though his fur is jet black). I hope this ruling opens the floodgates for others to sue anyone who doesn't accept that nature is not always right," said lawyer Thomas Barnes at the time, who represented Mike in court.
Mike though, was killed yesterday, after he was ripped apart by several kennel mates at the 'doggy hotel' he was staying at after his owners placed him there while they took a cruise. A spokesman for the kennels said Mike could have survived if he hadn't been spotted by the other dogs, thanks to his bleached white fur attracting attention, meowing and trying to cover up his shit.
