Rescuing cat owners from trees apparently is routine in Topeka

Firefighters in Topeka, Kan., rescued a cat from a tree. They also rescued its owner after she scaled the tree to fetch her cat.

A fire department shift commander said the woman and the cat were 16 feet up in a large tree when they were plucked out Wednesday.

And, he said, that kind of dual rescue isn't uncommon in Topeka. (AP)

Driven to succeed

"I felt like I'd achieved everything I really wanted to achieve. This was the one thing left..."

...I confess I am curious to know what this gentleman's other achievements are...

(I'm impressed with how well they trained the dogs...or do you think a bit of video montage is also involved?)

В Кирове активисты пожаловались на отказ об избрании мэром кота

Представители общественной организации "Наш Киров" обратились с жалобой в прокуратуру в связи с отказом депутатов кировской городской Думы рассмотреть вопрос об избрании мэром Кирова ...кота.

"Котам не положено!" - заявили депутаты, чем нарушили закон об обращениях граждан. Выдвижение котов на пост мэра продолжается. Выдвинуто уже 44 кота и кошки. Среди претендентов есть выдвиженцы от КПРФ, аграрной партии, партии любителей рыбы и много самовыдвиженцев. Конкурс был объявлен в связи с крайне небрежным отношением действующего мэра Валерия Владыкина к своим обязанностям. В частности, за последние несколько дней более 120 человек в Кирове упали, поскользнувшись на заледеневшем тротуаре, и получили ушибы и переломы, между тем мэрия не спешит посыпать песком улицы и убирать снежные завалы. Горожане с горя стали выбирать кота.

In the city of Kirov, political activists have lodged a complaint about the fact that feline candidates were denied being nominated for the election of the city's mayor.

Representatives of the social organization "Our Kirov" submitted a formal complaint to the city's attorney's office regarding the refusal of members of the city's council to consider electing...a cat as the city's mayor.

"Cats are not permitted!" declared the council members, thereby violating the law about citizens being able to submit nominations. Nominations of cats for the position of the mayor continue to be submitted. 44 male and female cats have already been nominated. Among the contenders, there are members of the Communist Party, Agrarian Party, Party of Fish Lovers, and many Independent Party candidates. The contest for nominating the candidates was announced because the current mayor, Valeriy Vladykin, is very neglectful of his duties. For example, in the last few days, more than 120 people in the city of Kirov slipped on the icy sidewalks and fell, sustaining bruises and fractures, but the mayor and his staff are still in no hurry to sprinkle sand onto the snow and to clear the sidewalks. Out of disappointment, the city's residents are nominating cats.
