Latest in Cat Prevention

Written by: ChilliBear Published on: 11 Feb 2000

We are pleased to be the first news source anywhere in the world to bring you the latest in anti-cat prevention methods.

We interviewed it’s creator, Professor Luther Robertson, of the University of West Belfast:

DFTFC: Professor, can you tell us a little about this amazing new invention.

Prof: The Cat-Trap, (patent pending) is the most sophisticated and efficient method of cat control since the air rifle was first invented. It is both easy to operate and clean and tidy, I also find it very unobtrusive in the garden.

DFTFC: In our own tests we found that it left quite a mess, when the cat was, err removed.

PROF: Yes the basic model does leave a little to be desired there, but the advanced model has its own cleaning system - which is a vast improvement.

DFTFC: ahh - good. We also found that it was prone to catching small rodents, and on one occasion a child.

PROF: Pah, a minor bug, that will be ironed out shortly.

DFTFC: Could you explain to us in terms an American would understand, how this machine actually works.

PROF: Basically when the cat steps into the trap (lured there by cat smells) a sensor is triggered and the jaws clamp shut with a force equivalent to 20kg of TNT.

DFTFC: We said in terms an American could…forget it. Thank you professor.

PROF: No thank you, and can I just say what a wonderful web site you all run.

Well there you have it from the mouth of the creator of the Cat-Trap. Here at DFTFC we intend to get a couple of these to put in our office gardens. The Cat-Trap will be available in DIY stores around the world from March, retailing at a mere $80, nothing if you consider for a moment the benefits of removing moggies form your premises.

Obviously this is all in good humour if you don't think so then you don't have "good humour". This is of course only a sarcastic sceptical FICTITIOUS (yes thats right it's not real! - It's actually made up! - Welcome to the world of satire), view on life the universe and everyone in the public light... hey it's all supposed to be good fun... honest :)
