cat with no sex organs adopted.

Cats Protection, a feline welfare charity in Great Britain, took in a very special, sweet cat recently—so special that the organization will probably never see a cat like Hope ever again.

That's because, after much inspection, the nonprofit determined the formerly homeless Hope has no sex organs, the charity wrote on its website.

The 15-week-old "extremely rare" kitten has none internally or externally—aside from the "outside possibility" some ovarian tissue is hidden somewhere inside their body.

On Twitter, the charity had to inform potential adopters that this certified cutie already had a new home.

"Discovering Hope's special status has been an exciting time as none of us have seen this before or are likely to again," said Tyneside Adoption Centre Manager Beni Benstead. »

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. will buy 100,000 rounds of howitzer artillery from South Korean manufacturers to provide to Ukraine, a U.S. official said Thursday, in a deal the two governments have been working on for some time.

Federal judge in Texas strikes down Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan

Authored by

A federal judge in Texas on Thursday struck down President Biden’s student loan forgiveness program, delivering a victory to a conservative advocacy group that sued to halt the plan.

Biden’s loan relief plan would cancel up to $10,000 in federal student debt for borrowers who earn up to $125,000 annually or up to $250,000 annually for married couples.

Myra Brown, the other plaintiff in the lawsuit, is ineligible for Biden’s plan because her federal loans, originated through the defunct Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) program, are held by private entities. »
