: PLAY THE NEW B3TA GAME
  What's New Pussy Cat?

  We have taken the stupidest pictures of cats
  on the Internet and created a fantastic new
  game.

  It tests the power of your memory by showing
  you pictures of cats, and asking you which
  one you haven't seen.

  This may sound simple, but we are rubbish at
  it, and can only reach level 9.

  TIP: Be Zen. Relax and trust your instinct.

: MEET TIDDLES
  Britains first celebrity cat.

  Tiddles - a revoltingly obese cat - lived in 
  the ladies' toilets in Paddington Station, London,
  in the 1970's.

  At three stone Tiddles weighed as much as a small
  child. 

  "He had a wall of fan mail from all over the world.
  He was the pet of the toilet attendant who stuffed
  him with sweets and chocolate. He was so fat that
  he could no longer walk," a Tiddles fan reminisces.

  Tiddles had his own fridge and eventually ate himself
  to death in 1983.

  See Tiddles' girth for yourself:

: ROBOT CAT TALKS TO YOUR GRANNY
  So that you don't have to.

  Matsushita Electric have made a robotic cat
  called Tama, designed to be a conversation
  partner for elderly people. 

  Tama can say up to 50 phrases, including
  "Today is the Karaoke party - let's sing a lot",
  and "Today is Wednesday - it is your day to go to
  the hospital."

  But unlike granny - it doesn't smell of wee.

: CAT IDIOMS EXPLAINED
  Stuff for the pub bores among you.

  "Not Enough Room to Swing a Cat"

  This expression, first recorded in 1771, is thought
  to allude to the cat-o'-nine-tails, a whip with
  nine lashes widely used to punish offenders in
  the British military. 


  "Raining Cats and Dogs"

  The Great Plague of 1665 took it's victims
  indiscriminately: people, dogs and indeed cats.
  After a storm, street gutters were sometimes
  filled with animals corpses.


  "Letting the Cat Out of the Bag"
 
  In medieval times, unscrupulous market traders
  would place kittens in bags, and sell them as pigs.
  The trick was to run from the fleeced punter
  before "the cat was let out of the bag."

  Felix - a French black and white tomcat - became
  the first cat in space in 1963.
