The Terrible Tabby


The reign of terror is finally over - Pullman's menacing cougar has been revealed as a pussycat.

Here's the link to the Lewiston Morning Tribune story, but unless you're a paid subscriber, you can't read it.

I really cannot imagine how anyone could mistake this for a cougar.

The kids can be let out to play in Pullman and pets can be released from their tethers.

The alleged cougar roaming the university town is still on the loose but it's been knocked down a few pegs on the feline family tree.

Turns out the cat in question is a tabby, albeit a monstrously large tabby.

"It's a very large feral cat with a long tail," Pullman Police Chief Ted Weatherly said.

What is the cat standing on? It looks like a well-cap to me. Does Queen Nancy know that we use water over here and more importantly, do we have her permision?

Well, since it is such a monster cat, I wonder if Chief Weatherly will allow someone to hunt it with a .50 cal revolver.
