That's just horrifying!

I don't trust the government because they lie. Cats have even more reasons.

Ok, cat commits suicide by car rather than help the CIA. This cat was more self aware than most people.

Right up there with sharks with friggin lasers on their heads. Which, by the way, have no comment on the whole Nordstream "accident".

“Unfortunately for the CIA, however, their $20 million yielded no results. They could not get her or any other cats to do what they wanted, so they finally scrapped the project in 1967.

Instead, they have moved on to using robots, such as the Nano Hummingbird Surveillance and Reconnaissance Aircraft by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Well, hopefully, they did.”

And that’s how they spend your hard earned tax dollars. 🐈‍⬛🙈🤦🏻‍♀️

My Red Mackerel Tabby Cornish Rex kitty, Miles, would never go for this horrible idea.

That aside, why would any one want to share this tragic story.... except as a reminder of how

arrogant stupid humans are.

Poster on my refrigerator: "Whatever crazy conspiracy theory you have about what the government is doing, the reality is much worse." I submit Project Acoustic Kitty as simply the latest exhibit in a long, long, effing long, line of prior examples.

My cats wouldn't dream (do cats dream?) of helping out the guv in this way, either. Too smart. And distractable.

Shows how out of control the USA government has been for a very long time. The pentagon cannot account for 21 Trillion Dollars. Maybe part of those funds were used to finance this atrocity... and many more ? I'm sure there are many more horrifying atrocities yet to be revealed. Reminds me of the statement: 'We've met the enemy and they are us'. Solutions ?

I have worked with DARPA as a contractor. They have a general, unwritten guideline that they are happy if their projects have a 1-in-ten success rate. Or in other words if 90% of their budget yields absolutely nothing useful.

This looks like part of that 90%.

That is horrifying to me, and I am not a child, wow. Don't they say psychopaths start by cruelty to animals, and gradually move up to humans?

In a somewhat related, but not cruel, documentary The Secret Life of the Cat, researchers in an English village, where it seemed everyone in the village had a cat or 2, and a cat door, where cats could come and go as they pleased, they outfitted a 50 cats with tracking collars and studied their patterns. As a crazy cat lady with 4 cats, it was interesting how they all had different ranges, and had routines to avoid other cats they didn't like. Watched it on bbc.com, looked around and can't find it now, other than 'no longer available' messages.
