Do you think that maybe Reuters isn't a Hesbollah sock puppet? Maybe they're just profoundly dumb. I've been told: never ascribe stupidity when the situation can be explained by daftness, or maybe it's never ascribe witlessness when the situation can be explained by insanity. Regardless, somewhere, cousins got married and their offspring went to work for Reuters. I mean, come on, Cats giving birth to dogs? Didn't anyone think to ask the neighbors about the litter of puppies that disappeared down the block?
By the way, when I was a boy, our scotty dog highjacked and nursed a litter of kittens from the next door over. Maybe the cat mom died, or ran off, or maybe Hilda just wanted the kittens more than their real mom. Hilda had just lost a litter and she felt that she needed puppies. In her mind, kittens were close enough. So she just kept taking the kittens from next door until the humans got tired of taking them back. Never occurred to us to sell the story to a terribly stupid news agency.
