The Internet is for cats

The three of the top five most e-mailed stories on BBC news right now:

Cats. Which tells me that that all you need to get the attention of the majority of Internet users is a picture of a cat. Or porn. But mostly cats. Feel free to make a dubious Thundercats reference here.

And “US cat ‘predicts patient deaths'”, really:

Oscar has a habit of curling up next to patients at the home in Providence, Rhode Island, in their final hours.

Whilst you could have so much fun with that (“Here, distract Jimmy while I slip this tuna into his pocket”) I’d think the first thing I want to do is get rid of the bloody cat. It’s got to be a little distressing when he stops his ’rounds’ and starts eyeing up your bed …

And anyway isn’t “US cat ‘harbours deadly virus'” or “US cat ‘secretly smothers patients in their sleep'” more likely?

Because cats can’t ‘predict patient deaths’.

Because cats aren’t psychic.

Dogs are.
