The Cat of Death

well, that's alarming

Earlier in the week I got into a discussion with realthog about the FBI's attempt to identify some of the users of Amazon Marketplace. In my usual mumbling way I said I saw this as just a case of people doing their jobs. The FBI wanted to identify those people because they had done business with someone they were building a case against, and some of them might have been witnesses. The judge saw the request might cause a precent, and denied them permission. This is how the system is supposed to work, and, to my mind at least, it worked well in this case.

On the other hand, I don't think I can ride to the defence of this with quite such a clear conscience. It appears that, under bounty-hunting laws that go back to the 19th Century, the United States is quite within its rights to `kidnap' anyone, anywhere, and bring them back to the US for trial. I'm not certain what I find more alarming - that they can do it at all, or that they've been able to do it since the 1860s and nobody seems to have known about it.

the oldest cat in britain?

I make no comment, except to say that in comparison to Pussywillow, our boys are barely teenagers and our little girl is little more than a newborn. Cats are living longer; veterinary science keeps advancing and owners are growing more and more willing to spend fantastic amounts of money to save their pets' lives. Last year, thanks to the wonderful people at the Royal Veterinary College up in Potters Bar, Dougal survived an infection which would have carried him off a few years ago. It was touch and go as it was. As I think I said at the time, if I ever get sick, I want to be taken up to Potters Bar.
