mail call

no wonder the u.s. postal service is considering dropping saturday deliveries.  it's those scary attack cats!
"this is an old age cat who gets dressed up as Santa each year - he wouldn't have the energy to attack postmen."

did you hear about the post office cat in alabama who was evicted on the grounds that he doesn't pay federal taxes?  looks like he's back, and even has his own p.o. box.

just for fun, check out this letter to the editor of the ny times, printed in 1909, discussing the federal money used to feed and house all the post office cats across the country  who were once responsible for keeping rats and mice from eating the mail.

who knew cats and the post office had such history?  pretty neat.
