Maybe the cat will save us from the octopus

This is apparently not an April Fool, but a real story via the Daily Mail:

“The feline, which has a purple collar, gets onto the busy Walsall to Wolverhampton bus at the same stop most mornings – he then jumps off at the next stop 400m down the road, near a fish and chip shop.”

Which, you know, I find it incredibly heartening that we’re training up our army of cats to help us take on the evil mollusks when those squishy things finally decide to start taking over.

But, I have to question the wisdom of selecting cats for our defensive army against the evil mollusks. I mean, cats aren’t exactly in it for our best interests, after all. If you’ve ever lived with a cat, you’ll know what I mean. Still, I’d rather be treated indifferently by a cat than be even in the same room as an octopus.

Then, again, maybe it’s the biological warfare being waged by the cat against us that we should all really be worried about, and I’m under the mind-altering influence of the cats already?
