Cat-astrophe

Introducing our latest weapon: Zionist Death Cat.TM
Ziggy the cat used up at least one of his nine lives after surviving for 17 days without food on a 2,300 mile voyage that took him from northern
Israel to England.
 
The skinny white cat named after Ziggy Stardust — the character created by David Bowie in the 1970s, because like the rock star he has one green and one blue eye — made his epic trip as a stowaway in a 40-foot container.
 
His journey began when he wandered into a consignment of plastic goods which were then sealed in Afula in Israel and shipped from Haifa on October 31.
 
It ended when he emerged, exhausted, starving and dehydrated, at a warehouse in Whitworth in Lancashire on Friday.
Ziggy is, of course, the nickname for the C100 feline robot, the latest in our arsenal of robotic spies. I suspect it was examining the aforementioned consignment of plastic goods – on grounds they were suspicious – when the container was sealed.
 
I know what you are thinking; this is just the case of an innocent cat that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well, consider the fact that this “cat” survived for 17 days without food, and happened to come from Northern Israel – the scene of the recent war against Hizbullah.
 
But, of course, you didn’t hear it from me.
 
Update: Corporate Presenter posts:
A lady from the RSPCA said that if the cat was micro-chiped, the owner would be found fairly quickly. Unfortunately, cats in Israel don’t tend to be tagged in this way.
Oh, I can assure the nice lady at the RSPCA that Ziggy is micro-chiped (like all other C100s). But if I were her, I would release Ziggy and pretend this never happened.
