Attitude Towards Cats by Pakistanis in the UK — 6 Comments

  1. I found it interesting when I stood in Boundary Mill for 2 hours with a tin collecting for the CPL.

    I would say that 95% of the people who donated were White British/Irish. Approximately 3% were Asian and 2% Black.

    I think this speaks volumes however having said this I am in no way racist I live in a close knit multi cultural society what I have stated is fact.

    I will never understand why someone would hate a creature enough to deliberately run it over I think that’s just sick.

    If you don’t like an animal then fine but just leave them the hell alone and live and let live.

    • I would say that 95% of the people who donated were White British/Irish. Approximately 3% were Asian and 2% Black.

      That is interesting Leah. That conforms with my idea of a cross-section of society and their relationship with cats. Thanks for that info.

      The question is why do Asians and black people like cats less than native British?

      For me the answer is that the Asia, Africa and the Caribbean is in general less developed, and in less well developed countries the dog is still more popular because they are seen as being more useful. That is probably the answer.

      • I think I’m in agreement Michael I have to admit I’m becoming a little fearful that our reputation of being a country of animal lovers may not be the case in years to come. I really think animal cruelty cases will rapidly increase because of the increase in first generation immigrants. After all sadly with places like Romania for example they torture dogs on the street. Some countries have scant, if any at all animal welfare laws.
        The UK is already seeing an increase in illegal dog fighting and the perpetrators aren’t being punished to the full extent of the law.
        I find it all very concerning 🙁

  2. Very true and very well written.

    Truth is what I love and what I like.

    Fact is FACT.

    But my friend Michael! the basic problem is that every Pakistani, let say 99.99% are not the Orthodox Moslem. Let me clear it out that even JIHADISTS are not true MOSLEMS. Yes! Let me clear it out!!!

    Western people say only a word.
    MOSLEM because they attend mosque????
    Just it???

    Many can even not understand ARABIC. I attend CHURCH! Am I a christian????

    No! not at all! I am MOSLEM but I am not Secular … no ….no way.

    I am a moslem. Because I am scholar of Qur’aan and Ahaadees. Tareekh wa Assaar. Tafseer wa Fiqh’h. 🙂

    These people living there in UK or all around the world, I mean Pakistanis, They have only the main knowledge about , perhaps Salaath, Fasting, Hajj, Perhaps Zakat (I doubt), Look at their faces, They even not obey the basic orders of prophet SAW, because they don’t know and they don’t care. Yes! literally saying that west is wrong that Pakistan is a Moslem country, No not at all. This is a multi Religion, Multi culture, Multi Concets and Multi creeds country.

    Basic! Mohemmud said;
    Always speak the truth
    Never lie
    keep your promise

    Who follows???

    Cats and kittens are the perhaps ZERO LEVEL priority to any Pakistani family or person but that does not mean that Cat lovers are not here in Pakistan. Yes they are but not FERAL CATS LOVERS. Ahaaaa NAAAANaaaaa! only domesticated house pet cats.

    So, I don’t know about Britain but Its true that ANIMAL LOVE is only found in SAINTS of Pakistani Culture. Yes I am also a follower of CHISHTI creed and therefore I love every creature of Allah and wish to have mercy on every one not only Moslems but also non Moslems.

    Thank you for the article Michael <3

      That is interesting to me. Ahsan you have so much information to tell us in the West about the Islam faith. We don’t know how devote Muslims in general are and how concerned they are to follow the genuine teachings of the Quran. We have the impression that Muslims are always devote and follow the Koran but no.

      Your comment is very interesting to me. The statistics say that over 90% of Pakistanis in Pakistan are Moslem but they aren’t practicing Moslems it seems to me. It is the same her with Christians.

  3. We don’t have many Pakistanis here, so I can’t really input.
    However, we have many Mexicans (it used to be Cubans, but no more) who absolutely hate cats. I don’t know where this hatred stems from; but, I have witnessed them veering off a road just to hit and kill a cat.
