Cat-22 Situation

Brother, Can You Spare A Diner?

Windsor Castle has been the victim of a cat burglar every day for the past four years. A cat called Mime, which lives in a Chinese restaurant 50 metres opposite, has been strolling past armed police and royal guards in order to dine with royalty - the Queen's corgis. On the Queen's birthday when Mime's normal route was blocked by a locked gate, security staff opened it especially to let her through. Owner Kevin Lam said: ``People ask me why the Queen's cat is in the restaurant. I keep having to tell them that she is actually my cat.''

FOOTNOTE: You’ve lost that lovin’ feline.

Another case of animals being treated better than people, which is ok with me, it makes my business more successful!

Please remember that cats were once treated as royalty. Mime does.

Just like back then, in Cleopatra's days! :-)
Very sweet story.

'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'
(Joseph Heller, "Catch-22")

Well, I'd heard that a cat could look at a Queen. Looks like in this case the cat preferred going to the dogs. (g)

Peace!
