    All several hundred of the prisoners were suspects as, according to a prison official in one version of the story that I read, "The cat's not talking."

    I thought this was so cruel to use the cat this way and really wonder if he/she survived, although the articles stated it was taken for treatment....

    Mr. Knot was telling me about this yesterday and I kept looking at him waiting for the punchline..........

    Even after there wasn't one I still thought he was making it up.

    Poor kitty mouser.
