Typical military – shoot it or root it.

But only one round from a .303 to stop an ignorant redneck from being cruel to animals.

speaking of which, just two weeks ago i witnessed, from my bedroom across the street, the london fire brigade saving a cat which had climbed out of a third floor window of a victorian terrace house and had got stuck.

the cat, being as cats are, decided it didn’t want saving and climbed across a ledge further away from safety necessitating the use of another long ladder to trap him in the middle.

quite a crowd gathered and cheered heartily when the fireman climbed down the ladder with the errant cat.
