Mom and Dad saw the teaser for this news article about missing cats (fortunately, not local) and I also stumbled across a story of a cat in a plane for three weeks. (Will Samuel L. Jackson make a movie about cats on a plane?) It really bothers my parents when people treat pets like animals. There's a difference, and we deserve respect. (Read the plane story second because it's happier.)
Update: Did you see the Weekly World News? A fat cat owns 23 old women! Wow!
