When the people who came to pray at the Wall noticed the cat, they quickly placed a stack of plastic chairs atop a table to get it down. A young man, who moments ago was likely lost in prayer, climbed atop the makeshift Tower of Babel, reached over for the cat, and then gently, lovingly, threw it off its perch. From the cheers of the surrounding crowd, one can assume the cat safely landed on its feet. After the ordeal was over, those who gathered round to offer their advice burst into awkward song, as order was restored and feline justice was once again de rigueur.
Like Kim Kardashian before it, for a split-second the cat broke the internet. Twitterverse in particular took the story and ran with it, Tweeting up a storm over the “tzadik” cat. One user even jokingly(?) suggested that the fluffy infiltrator materialized as an answer to someone’s prayer asking for a cat.
