Nov-19-04  percyblakeney: And what about Fritz De Cat, did he play chess?
Nov-19-04  aw1988: Fritz is a chess engine too... yet no engine for a cat... the felines will be quite @#$%* off if Cerberus 9.0 is released.

  BishopBerkeley: I wonder who would be the aggressor in a game between Ben De Cat and Soenke Maus ?!

  whiteshark: Life is life - whether in a cat, or dog or man. There is no difference there between a cat or a man. The idea of difference is a human conception for man's own advantage.

Dec-23-09  I play the Fred: Oooh, deep. Wow, Aurobindo really opened my eyes with that piffle.
Jan-11-10  Raisin Death Ray: His parents were Felix the Cat and Ben Gay.

I think this should give us all paws for thought.

<BOSTON -- Duty calls for an East Boston resident.

Someone is getting called for jury duty...but it's no human.

A family is trying to figure out how their pet cat was summonsed for jury duty.

�I said, Sal, what�s this? You know, I don�t believe it I was shocked,� said Guy Esposito, Sal�s owner.

Sal�s owners, Guy and Anna Esposito, think they may know the source of the mix up: Sal really is a member of the family, so on the last Census form, Anna Esposito listed him under �pets�.

�I just wrote �Sal Esposito�, scratched out the �dog,� and wrote, �cat,�� said Anna.

Anna filed for Sal�s disqualification of service. However, the jury commissioner was unmoved and denied the request.>

Apr-09-10  BobCrisp: <Royal Mail has stopped deliveries to a house in Leeds after postal workers came under attack from an elderly cat.

Tiger is said to have scratched postal workers and chased them down the garden path at his home in High Bank Street, Farsley, over the past few weeks.

Owner Tracy Brayshaw, who must now pick up mail from the nearest sorting office, said the ban was "a bit silly".

She added: "We're talking about a 19-year-old geriatric cat here who likes lazing out in the sun."

Mrs Brayshaw, 43, a pharmacy dispenser, said the black-and-white cat slept for 20 hours a day but was always ready to pounce on unsuspecting staff.>

Jan-06-11  Raisin Death Ray: Has he ever played against Dog the Bounty Hunter?
