Some current cat news

The Associated Press reports that an Idaho cat entered an electrical substation, snuggled up to a warm transformer and contacted a live circuit, causing a short that blew out nine feeder lines. The cat died, but he also caused a power outage that blacked out more than 12,000 homes and businesses. Speaking of dead cats, a dog in Britain missed the family’s dead cat so much that he dug up his grave and brought the body back into the house. The Times on Line reports that Oscar's owners woke up the next morning to discover the dog curled up beside Arthur, the late cat, in his basket.
