Cats according to the Quran, Sunnah and Hadith

Islam teaches Muslims that, in relation to a cat:
* the cat should not be sold for money or other traded goods
* cats saliva is harmless unless the cat has “visible impurities” in the mouth
* that Muslims are free to live with cats but they must treat cats well, providing the cat with enough water and food and giving “roaming time” (a degree of freedom of movement)

Fritz Capellari, Woman with cat, 1915
