It turns out one of the internet's favorite pastimes is frowned upon in Saudi Arabia.
Prominent Muslim cleric Saleh Al-Fawzan was asked about the "new trend" of posting photos with cats. He wasn't happy about the fad, but it has nothing to do with the cats.
Al-Fawzan said, "Taking pictures is prohibited if not for a necessity — not with cats, not with dogs, not with wolves, not with anything."
