Iran To Send Persian Cat Into Space

Because monkeys in space are so 2012..

"Oh crap!"
“Oh crap!”

Iran says it is considering sending a Persian cat into space as the next animal astronaut after claims of launching a monkey earlier this year.

The effort is part of Iranian ambitions to send a human into space by 2018, but questions have been raised about the reported successes of Iran’s animal missions.

Monday’s report by the official IRNA news agency quotes space official Mohammad Ebrahimi as saying the next animal could be the distinctive Persian cat, a long-haired, flat-faced breed named after Iran’s former name of Persia.
No other details were given.

Major Tomcat to ground control..

Update: In other cat-related news, my beloved Himalayan cat, Sheba, passed away this morning at the age of three.

This is the same cat who survived the great Hanukkah candle mishap of 2012 (she caught on fire by getting too close to the candles and I blew her out before any damage was done beyond some singed fur).

I photographed her lying on our Challah cover less than a month ago.

sheba

She will be missed.

  1. I am sorry to read about the passing over of your young cat.

    The article reminded me about a picture of a Persian cat with the text: Israeli cats we love you
    Persians cats against war.
