Cat Had Kittens

When I was rather younger, everything oddly wrong was blamed on the Atom Bomb. Violent thunder storm? Atom Bomb. Cow went dry? Atom Bomb. Bad crop? Atom bomb. I recall an issue of Mad Magazine that recited a litany of such nonsense, the punch line being, “Cat had kittens? Atom bomb!”

Comes now Pets Across America, which describes itself as being “the largest pet adoption community in the United States, serving 125 million people in the top U.S. markets.” They report an enormous increase in the number of stray cats being brought into their shelters. And they are quite certain of the cause.
