SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
I love stories like this because they are impossible to make up or invent! An error in a census listed Sal –the cat–as a member of the Esposito family in East Boston. In the ‘States jury duty exists and–sure enough—Sal got called up. The cat’s owner tried to explain the situation , but to little avail. In the end, it was necessary to have the cat disqualified for a technicality: the cat did NOT speak english!!
It is not known if the US Imigration services have been notified….(!?)
