    Interesting article. Thanks for posting it. I had no idea that pets are included in Jewish Law & tradition.


    p.s. The handsome pooch in the picture looks like my Daughter's Great Pyr.

    I found this interesting also, and had no idea either that pets are included when Kosher is involved during Passover. I wonder how many Jewish families that have pets, actually adhere to these laws? Seems the "fictional sales" or feeding them in the garage would be a whole lot easier, tho.

    I'm curious, too. I ran this by some Jewish friends, and they were amazed (not to mention QUITE amused!).

    To any Jewish Pet Talk members: were you aware of these laws, and if so, do you follow them to any extent?

    And then there's this, the Passover story as told by cats: http://www.buzzfeed.com/youotterbeli...d-by-cats-9n6t

    Gut Pesach, all!
