EJF backer Tom Kaplan - saving the big cats


Who could have predicted that a mild-mannered Oxford-educated historian, with a PhD in the politics of colonial Malaya, would make an absolute killing from mineral extraction, with assets valued at billions of dollars?

Who then could have predicted that, while still in his mid-forties, the billionaire minerals magnate would channel his energies and business acumen into saving big cats from extinction? [...]

    What a delicious irony. I'm surprised no one has made a crack yet about Kaplan's other associations with figurative and literal "fat cats".

  2. Maybe Kaplan love for predatory animals cause him to choose Tropper. Why otherwise Kaplan will finance machlokos among the Jewish people

  3. Kaplan should be able to get this feline into the Kol Yaakov yeshiva:

    A 10-year-old Russian Blue named Carmen terrorized her owners in their own home in New York City for a half an hour on Saturday before police arrived and were able to calm the animal down, reports the New York Post. The cat's owner, Rosa Davila, believes that her cat's violent behavior is due to a medical condition.

    The 16-pound cat began making strange noises and suddenly launched herself at Davila's 27-year-old son Victor. The New York Post reports that Rosa and Victor hid in the apartment's bedroom while Rosa called 911 and asked them to rescue her family from the upset kitty.

    Hordes of police officers arrived at the apartment expecting to find a wild cat -- and were surprised to find the portly Russian Blue instead. Carmen was coaxed into a cat carrier and taken to Manhattan's Animal Care and Control center where she may be available for adoption after she is evaluated.

    Davila told the New York Post that Carmen was diagnosed as borderline diabetic with a thyroid condition; she wanted to be fed every five minutes and she was rapidly gaining weight. Davila was unable to afford proper medical treatment for Carmen and she believes that her disorder led her to become violent.
