Syrian Migrants Refuse To Leave Their Beloved Pets Behind

Migrant petsCats and dogs are among the rush of migrants making their way to Europe

    I thought Muslims despise any pet smaller than a goat.

  • Dana Garcia

    Liking furry pets is better than torturing them, in the usual allah-bot style.

    I can relate — I shlepped my Suki from Dallas to Vancouver (6 day road trip) and then from Vancouver to Toronto by plane. When you have a bond with an animal (they are not “pets”), it is impossible to leave them behind.

      Especially in times of war, when you are running for your live from the enemy.

    On a lighter note, from
    the late, great Christopher Hitchens.“If you provide a dog with food, water,
    and shelter, the dog will draw the conclusion that you are a god. If you
    provide a cat with food, water, and shelter, the cat will draw the conclusion
    that it is a god.”

    I would run into a burning building to save my 4 dogs.

      And I would do the same for my 3 kittehs.

      I’m reminded of an 80’s movie called ffolkes. Connery’s most distinctive line was, “I like cats, and I don’t like people who don’t.”

    “Unnamed couple” in picture looks like a 48 year old thang and his 9 year old first cousin once removed.

    Johnny Depp must be really pissed off about that.

    I’m sure if they use those cruise ships to bring them over, their will be every facility for their dogs, like spas and such.

    • Xavier

      They do have those amenities but you have to purchase a separate ticket for the animal unless you’re on the frequent refugee plan and have enough miles for an upgrade to first class.

    I am confused. We were made to think that these are fanatic Islamists, but they have dogs???

    • That is their saving grace.

    • Xavier

      That’s an Indonesian refugee, and that’s dinner.

  • Grant asylum to all cats, kick out the muzzies.

  • Cat-astrophe

    If their bringing a dog, there not a practicing Muslim.

  • Pavelina

    Well, that’s something in their favor. I’ve read that Iranians also keep dogs as pets although they’re not supposed to.
