Cats in the News with Yoshi the cat

Yoshi

Hello people! Yoshi here. As a cat who keeps up with current affairs, I thought that I would take this opportunity to share a few of the interesting cat related news stories that I’ve come across.

-Here’s a report from TIME magazine about cats ability to forecast the weather:

I’d bet a can of tuna that cats have a higher accuracy rate that your local tv weatherman.

-If you’re diabetic you may want to skip this next story. Its about a program in Pennslyvania where kids volunteer to read to cats at an animal shelter:

This is for a great cause but I’m not sure that it qualifies as news. Now if the cats were reading to the kids, then you would have a Pulitzer Prize winning story.

-And finally here’s a serious story about a couple of sisters that were held hostage and how a cat helped them survive the ordeal:

After reading that I’m not going to make any sort of flippant comment. I just marvel at the capacity of my fellow cats to help humans through even the most stressful situations. You people are so lucky to have us.

That’s the feline news for this week.
