Can I Buy a Cat in the USA?

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My family wants a kitten/cat. I live in the USA, and where I live it’s very hard to find someone who’s giving away a cat. I heard that it’s not permissible to buy a cat. Can you please tell me the ruling on this? Can I buy a cat?


A: It is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
