This cat, Oscar, has been accused of evil! I thought the days of feline scapegoating had passed, no more cries of Satanism from the uneducated or superstitious mutterings from the ignorant.
But heavens no! There are still people out there who will try to blame an innocent animal for their own human wrongdoing.
Let’s face it, dogs are constantly blamed for eating homework – but now a bad man says his cat downloaded child pornography.
Police are charging Keith Griffin of Jensen Beach, Florida with 10 counts of possession of child pornography after finding more than 1,000 images on his personal computer.
Griffin told police he had been downloading music, and that his cat jumped on the keyboard when he left the room. He said “strange things” appeared on the computer when he returned.
Flaming Kibble Collywobble! Must be quite a fast connection if the cat managed to download so much porn during Griffin’s brief absence. Over a thousand images in how many minutes? And from file-sharing programs! I must try and persuade the woman-who-feeds-me to change her internet provider.
Griffin is being held in jail on $250,000 bond. No word on any charges against the cat.
While Keith Griffin’s story of blaming his cat for downloading porn is amusing, we must all remember that child pornography is not.
Blaming the cat won’t work either.
