Stray cat a suspect in Japan attempted murder

Tokyo (AFP) – A Japanese police probe into the attempted murder of an elderly bedridden woman has reportedly led to an unlikely suspect: a stray cat.

Mayuko Matsumoto’s daughter found her bleeding profusely from about 20 cuts to her face on Monday at her home in a mountainous region of southern Japan.

Police launched an attempted murder investigation after seeing the wounds, some of them relatively severe, according to local broadcaster RKK.

    Cats are conservatives by natural inclination. There are exceptions, of course, but those are considered “off their paws” by other felines. Given the current media bias against conservatives, this poor cat is either conservative and being set-up or a “bad cat” who is “off his paws”.

    I’m not saying that the cat was radicalized by ISIS over the Internet; I’m just asking if the police have checked it’s search history.
