Freya, pictured here on Downing street, reappeared three years later but some officials think that the cat may be spying for the Chinese government because of its interest in high security areas. Well, cats do have a reputation for being fickle when it comes to loyalty. And you gotta admit this cat looks mega sneaky.
I guess it makes sense to use a cat for clandestine work. They’re loyal, obedient, and really easy to train. Oh, wait, no they’re not. Cats are the exact opposite of that!
It’s reported that Freya has been spotted trying to do her nefarious work in many venues…
She was caught trying to get into the Treasury, the Foreign Office and was even found at a secret war gaming exercise involving the Navy. If anything this proves that cats will literally go to the ends of the Earth to find that perfect lap to sleep on.
The last time someone tried to use a cat as a spy was during the Cold War. The Americans, true to form, spent way too much time and money training a cat to spy on the Russians. The cat was hit by a taxi on it’s first day on the field. SFX: Sad trombone.
The U.S. military has since moved on to dolphins for their spy games, but we’ll not be psyched until we’ve got frickin’ sharks with frickin’ laser beams attached to their frickin’ heads.
