I love cats. Wild cats. House cats. Cartoon cats. Any kind of cats. I'm your run-of-the-mill cat fanatic. Anything I post here will have something to do with cats. Sprinkled among the posts you will find some cool (I think) cat-themed items that might just look nifty among your cat collectibles.

Jury duty calls ... even for cats!


This is Sal Esposito, a cat who was called for jury duty in Boston. I can understand how a pet could be called for jury duty, since some people use their pet's name when signing up for magazine subscriptions and the like. In this case, the cat's owners listed him on the 2010 Census. (I wonder if that is illegal. hmmm...) What I don't understand, however, is how a government employee could refuse to excuse the pet from service after learning that he is a cat. Chalk it up to "your tax dollars at work", I guess.
