Inspector Kitty Cat

“Tomcat Lalya’s days,” Mumbai Mirror reports, “are spent bullying officers at Cuffe Parade police station into feeding him and making sure they don’t serve him water in a bowl. It has to be fresh off the tap!”

Funny story, yes, and there’s scope for examining how things would have panned out if Sonia Gandhi had a cat and no children. Would the kitty have been general secretary of the Congress Party?
