Shock! Horror! Cat found asleep in 2011!

Has the BBC really dumbed down this much? Maybe it was just a slow news day.

His lackadaisical approach to mousing has previously led to speculation he would be relieved of his duties.

Larry was brought in to catch rodents, but he was spotted asleep on the job for several hours back in November 2011.

I laughed out loud at the idea of anyone being surprised to find a cat asleep.

Poor. And not just the BBC dumbing down, either - is this really the sort of inane drivel the No.10 press team think is worth their time these days? No wonder no-one's bothering to vote any more.
