fred the undercover kittie has been murdered by an oncoming car.
that is sad.
here's some of his career highlights, from cnn.com:
He posed as a would-be patient to help police nab a man pretending to be a veterinarian.
Fred had been "preparing for a new career in education," with a "significant role" in a classroom program that teaches children how to care for animals.
okay, he did not pose as a would be patient. he was sent to the poseur-vet. he didn't do much. he didn't purr his way in. he didn't fake an injury. he was dropped off with the vet. or with a senior citizen. or with a clown. what does it matter. he had no idea.
and he was not preparing for a new career. he was not working towards his masters. he did not put together class plans. plainly put, he was going to be petted in front of children.
how do i know this? because he met his end by being run over by a car. and trust me, something that was intelligent enough to go undercover for the police and also has a significant role in teaching children probably would also know to look both ways before he crossed.
call it a hunch.
