Larry the Downing St Cat has been at no 10 Home of the UK's Prime Ministers since 2011. There have been cats at the home of Government Ministers for years listening to all those great secrets of state. Perhaps they share the news with fellow cats so that they can keep ahead of the game. In The Tenth Life by Michael J Owen (Amazon paperback and now free with Prime) cats get to be at the centre of the political universe and do share the secrets of government crises.
There have been a number of instances reported recently in which cats and kittens have been thrown from moving cars. There is a theory that this is some sort of perverse game that has been stimulated but images on social media. In Birmingham in November a tiny cat named Annabelle was thrown from a moving vehicle close to a cat rescue centre. Other instances occurred from 2015 in the USA in Austin and New Durham. Cat protection groups are keeping a close eye on this disturbing trend.

Now in this century cats have infections that can spread to children and adults. As Society fears disease from animals, cattle birds so it fears the poor cat.
A parasite spread by cats can hold the key to successful entrepreneurship according to the Proceedings of the Royal Society. Toxoplasma Gondii is a single cell parasitic that worms its way into the brain and causes personality changes associated with risk taking. Analysis from 42 countries revealed that the prevalence of T.gondii was a ‘consistent, positive predictor of entrepreneurial activity.’ Whether the cats become successful business people is a different story.
