Russian-bred cats 'banned' from int'l events
As part of the wave of sanctions on Russia, Russian-bred cats cannot attend FIFe events no more.
Many thought this was a joke at first - the International Feline Federation, FIFe, a Paris-based organization that creates over 700 events a year where over 200,000 cats are shown, has banned Russian-owned cats from competing in FIFe's shows.

This means that cats bred in Russia won't be able to be imported, attend events, or be registered in FIFe's pedigree book, as it remains a condemned pet.
"The FIFe executive board is shocked and horrified that the army of the Russian Federation invaded the Republic of Ukraine and started a war", the group said on Tuesday.
The group will also be organizing donations to support cat breeders in Ukraine.
Earlier today, the Russian Foreign Ministry stated that the reaction of the international community towards Russia, most notably in the UN General Assembly, is hysterical.
