The Funny Side To Killer Cats

If you are young and groovy (oh dear, just by using the word 'groovy' you know I don't belong to that demographic) you will know of  The Oatmeal, the site of an illustrator who draws humourous cartoons about cats, and other stuff, but mostly cats. Here is his take on recent American research into cat predation.

I'm probably not supposed to reproduce his work, so keep it under your hat.

The researchers attached cameras to the cat's collars and managed to record some interesting encounters.

"Other highlights from the kitty cams were of the stomach-turning variety: Cats were seen eating roadkill, climbing down into storm drains and lapping up sewer water, and eating insects like walking sticks and earthworms."
