Vanishing Cat Sign.

By 2 May 2009 61

On a trip to Cook shops yesterday, I checked as  always do, the “local notice board”. It’s a source of bargains, and not a few lunatic services/ courses /get rich quick schemes. (“Knit your own feng-shui garlic dream-catchers, make $$$$!”).

However one notice was rather astonishing. Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera with me, so I couldn’t take a shot.

I’ve just been down there with my camera, and a hang-over, but the sign has gone. The polt thickens!!

It was printed on an inkjet printer, properly capitalised and punctuated, (the first things to look for when spotting the…less hinged…posters work). To the best of my memory ability,  it read;

Do you own a cat in Cook?

Then you’d better learn how to keep it in your yard or your house, especially at night.

 Otherwise you may not have it at the end of 2009!

Several things about it puzzled me;

a) Is it a threat or an alert?

b) Was it aimed at the whole cat owning community, or an individual?

c) Why the long time scale, why not; “by the end of May!”?

d) Why no phone number, or contact details, for further information?

e) Will there be a new notice at the end of 2009, advertising “genuine cat skin gloves cheap”?

WTF, why is Cat crap in sand pits such a recurring theme here?

Seriously, how many people have sand pits!?

People with kids. Kids pick up stuff and put it in their mouth. Kid catches Toxoplasmosis and gets really sick. One of the reasons stray cats make families nervous.

Actually, Toxoplasmosis primarily causes problems for women who become infected during pregnancy. Up to 90% of the population (depending on country) is infected. For the vast proportion of the population, toxoplasmosis causes no ill effects. In addition, it can also be acquired by eating soft cheeses (thus accounting for the high infection rate of some European populations).
