Aussies......What do you think of the tragic news today?

Kevin Rudd's cat, Jasper died. I am an animal lover - don't get me wrong but its all over the internet, was given a mention on every Sydney news channel tonight...We, as little people in the scheme of things dont get a mention if one of our beloved family members dies, let alone our beloved animals. What do you all think - Have they got nothing else to talk about ??


@ Jay D: Don't be like that - I feel sorry for the poor cat but why does it get a news mention?

@ BHP: Don't think K Rudd would be interested in a new dog yet - he still has the golden retriever - maybe what's up pussycat would be a better song !!

    Oops ! Sorry but I missed it ...I feel so ashamed of myself . So Ruddy's Moggy's carked it has it...a national day of mourning would be appropriate.

    Are we that starved of anything the least bit newsworthy that this is the best they can come up with ? Says a lot about what the fickle public's interested in ....

    btw , I have form when it comes to feral cats ! Say no more .....

    Must have been a slow news day. The commercial stations really think we're all stupid. Some of the guff they run in the news is just ridiculous. There's a whole world out there generating news stories that would be more interesting or have more impact than that.

    RIP Jasper, I know it's awful when a pet dies. But HOW did the media find out anyway?

    I agree with you wholeheartedly. What is it coming to when the death

    of a politicians cat makes the news!

    I can't stand cats because they kill small birds & animals but everyone

    to their own.

    In the west there is not a single night that passes where the commercial

    channels, at their 6:00pm time slot, doesn't have a similar story to this.

    Either that or someone putting on fake crying about how her eleven kids

    wont have any Christmas presents due to a fire at their rented house!

    They call them human interest stories......I can't say here what I call them!
