  • No way to treat a cat

    I knew the Iranian regime was cruel, but now they've sunk to a new low. They plan to fire a cat into space:

    If he comes down in a civilised country, I hope he gets asylum.

    It's nothing new; we used Monkies, as did the Soviets. Dogs, too, in the latter's case.

          I thought this was going to be about how pet owners hate the idea of their animals being beasts, and do lots of unnatural things to them to render them sad little accessories with animal silhouettes.
          "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
