What is illicit cat possession, you might ask?
Let’s explain by using a practical example involving Golden State Warriors big man JaVale McGee.
According to a report by Patrick Redford over at Deadspin, McGee was not allowed to keep his cat, Raja, in his apartment when he was a member of the Dallas Mavericks. He also is alleged to have caused other damages to the apartment, furniture, and flooring.
All in all, he agreed to pay for all the late and unpaid rent he owed, $12,000 in repairs, as well as $9,350 in cat-related fees. Subtracting his security deposit and tacking on an extra $10,000 for legal fees that Johnson requested, McGee agreed to pay $26,000. He submitted a petition to confess judgment yesterday.
Seems illicit enough.
Long live Raja. He seems cool and worth the $9,350 in cat-related fees.
