NEWS FOR CAT LOVERS

This kitty is making history by making great strides in
her recovery from paralysis with hydrotherapy... supervised
swimming, or paddling in the water.

Well, it was inevitable. Cats can now make comments on
Twitter with this innovative device. (If you don't know what
Twitter is, drop in at http://twitter.com and have a look. It's
an amazing social media site where you can leave comments
and make friends too!)
