Bustopher, an Australian cat, tries to hatch chicken eggs.Bustopher, a cat from AustraliaMost cats eat chicken eggs. This cat sits on them. The four-year-old Australian barn cat is suffering an identity crisis, but it's "a cute ailment." Naomi Oliver's chickens laid their eggs, but didn't show too much interest in hatching them. And so Bustopher took over for the negligent hens. "I am not sure if he knows that he is a cat, he doesn't really behave like one," Mrs Oliver told the Northern Territory News.

Man blames cat for computer use

It's the same old story... You leave the house, spend a tough day at work, arrive home and find your cat typing furiously away on your computer - maxing out  your credit card as he furiously orders catnip and furry plastic mice. After the shopping spree, the cat begins searching out child pornography. If you ask Keith Griffin, that's his story and he's sticking to it. Well, at least to the "blame cat for child porn" part of the story. Recently, Florida police received a tip that there was questionable content on a man's computer. After seizing the system, police found over 1,000 images of child pornography. Griffin calmly and rationally explained it all away by claiming he was a victim of his cat's internet searches. He states that he would arrive home and find "strange material" on his computer - the result of his cat jumping up on his keyboard. Amazingly, the  judge didn't buy the remarkable story and made it clear the man could sell movie rights after posting $250,000 in bail. We're fairly certain that the cat didn't hock his food bowl to bail his owner out of jail. The cat does not currently face charges. We recommend that if Griffin ever gets out of jail, he may want to invest in the PawSense: Prevent Cyber Pet Attacks program...

FIV Needn't Be A Death Sentence

I’ve met many stray felines over the years, and each and every one of them has taught me something.  A cat we now affectionately call ‘Fat Louie’ is definitely no exception. His was the typical extremely sad life of a feral cat in America – along with millions of others of his kind.  He was the offspring of someone’s neglected, abandoned, and un-neutered pet – forced to fend for himself since birth, forced to rummage through trash bins and dumpsters to survive yet one more miserable day, and always forced to hide in the deep dark shadows in fear of mankind’s utter callousness and cruelty.

IBM has created a supercomputer with the equivalent of a cat’s brain. According to Forbes, “IBM has simulated a brain with 1 billion neurons and 10 trillion synapses--about the equivalent of a cat's cortex, or 4.5% of a human brain.” The project is partly funded by $20 million from the Department of Defense. Supercomputers of today can perform in hours what would take a powerful desktop computer thousands of years. However, they cannot handle complex functions such as perception or pattern recognition. While scientists still don’t fully understand the far more organic supercomputer between our ears, they can certainly do their best to model it.

  • Cats covering feces

    Dear Ghost, Why do cats cover their feces? My two cats are neurotic about covering up everything in their litter box, which is stupid because it's automatic anyway. Is it really necessary? Thanks,
