While the internet thrives on adorable cats — a less-adorable cat story has made headlines: a man from southern Israel has cited the stress of owning 550 cats as grounds for divorce.
The cats were brought home by his wife and eventually led to the deterioration on his marriage, according to the Times of Israel. We can't imagine why.
The husband, apparently not a cat-lover, told a court that he was unable to sleep in his bedroom because the couple's bed was overrun with cats that refused to sleep on the floor.
To make the situation worse, after he gave her an ultimatum, she chose the cats over him.
This bizarre story coincides with the birthday of one of the internet's most loved cats.
Maru the box-loving cat has celebrated his fourth birthday with a video of his greatest hits put together by his Japanese owner.
Maru's YouTube channel has had nearly 160 million views. See his latest video above.
