So Strange

In the wake of the sad news coming from Missouri, I thought I'd pass on this tidbit from the American Philatelic Society.  Included on their page of fun facts - apparently the Belgians decided to try a animal delivery system involving cats.  You will be shocked (shocked, I tell you) to hear that the experiment didn't last long since the cats were "undisciplined".  (I'm guessing undisciplined is code for: did not see any good reason to fetch and carry things.)  This has apparently inspired a children's book.

h/t to Marjorie M. Liu for posting this link on Twitter.
