Japanese Dude Goes Nuts When His Kitty Cat Dies
"A Japanese man drove the wrong way down an expressway for 90 kilometres (55 miles) and broke through five police barricades because his cat had died, he told police.
Tsutomu Mizumoto, 31, was arrested early Wednesday on the northern island of Hokkaido, the Mainichi daily reported.
`I was sad that my pet cat died,` he was quoted as telling police. `I wanted to do something crazy.` AFP
If I died at home while watching TV, my cats would use my corpse as a pillow until the stench got too bad.
I love my kitty cats, but I`m not under the delusion that they care about me. They love the Sunkist tuna fish I feed them every day, but they barely tolerate me.
When my cats die, I will grieve for them, but I won`t drive down an expressway the wrong way.
Mizumoto should be locked in a loony bin, it`s a miracle he didn`t kill himself or anybody else with his reckless stunt.
I would guess that Mizumoto doesn`t have a girlfriend or a wife. When he gets out of jail he should look for a woman that will make him forget his dead cat.
