The furry masters react to a Spending Challenge suggestion

One member of the public has made a proposal on the Spending Challenge website that could significantly reduce our reliance on costly imports by using an environmentally gentle means of producing energy - harnesing the untapped energy of the cat population

Great Britain has a huge cat population. For most of their day they loll around on sofas, beds, walls etc. By changing existing Animal Protection legislation to allow all cats to be forced to spend just 1 hour per day on a government issued treadmill, connected to the National Grid, at least 12.5 gigawatts of electricity could be generated.

This could be sold back to the Energy providers at the current wholesale market rate.

Cats who refuse to comply could be fined, after a statutory warning.

Needless to say the furry foursome are not happy:

Sadly it has now been deleted. Shame as itwas actually no worse than most of the ideas people are putting up on the site

To the best of my knowledge this is the first time Ted has been in the same photo with another life form.

We all know that the cats would have their "staff" on that tread mill to cover for them.

It's a shame they deleted it, as I would have loved to seen someone attempt to present Ted with a "statutory warning".

I think all MPs should be on treadmills 24/7. Will stop them doing any harm and the one light bulb they manage to light will be the greatest good many have ever done.

It might work if one of the huge population of dogs were introduced to the treadmill, behind the cat.

D'awwww what great pics, and a cute idea. Its too bad it was deleted. People need a smile when times are tough.

my grandfather used to say of our cat, "if that cat could talk it could get a job"
probably true of all cats....
but would they want to?

You could make a mint out of yours.

I think you're right Beak!

Bryan the consequences of issuing that warning would have been dreadful!

Now there's a thought Calum!

That would increase productivity Angus

True Sue, sadly most of the ideas are from foaming mouth bigots
