This could be a reason for not allowing your cat to gain overweight, as it can easily be mistaken for a Lion. With the Essex community already being reputable as idiots due to the TOWIE show, this really does take the cat biscuit.
A group of Holidaymakers staying at a Caravan park in Essex, which was probably their full time homes, said that they saw a lion in a field, and alerted the police. They even took this wonderful picture of it, which is grainy as it has been zoomed in 300x to make it look bigger. I believe I can see the individual strands of grass in that image.
The big joke on the internet right now is that this has become the ‘mane’ attraction of Essex.
The BBC have been covering the story as well as the army of Police Officers who went out searching for the lion, much like they were searching for a swan previously. Oh sorry, that was Hot Fuzz.
This story is just stupid really. I’m sure they didn’t bother to check the nearest zoos to actually see if a lion was missing, and even work out that it would be pretty difficult to get a lion into the UK, and then allow it to grow and set it loose in a nearby field to find some prey.
A woman named Ginny Murphy has since explained the the cat infact belongs to her, and although it is quite large, it is clearly a pussy. To be fair, in that image it does have the light shining on it’s head to make it look like a lion with it’s fur, in the smallest of ways.
The search has since been called off. Apparently the Police are too busy searching for that missing swan again.
I can totally see the resemblance. I need a drink after all this. I think I might pop to this nice pub I heard off in Colchester, Essex. Oh that’s right, it’s called The Lion.
