Kitty drops in on court­room

Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS - Tam­lyn Jolly

WITH stern mag­is­trates and busi­nesslike le­gal ea­gles go­ing about their busi­ness of ap­ply­ing law and or­der, the court­room is cer­tainly not a place to pussy­foot around.

Jam-packed daily court rolls de­mand metic­u­lous time man­age­ment, and any form of in­ter­rup­tion is se­verely frowned upon, es­pe­cially by no-non­sense M’lords who will no doubt, bang the gavel fu­ri­ously when any­thing threat­ens the or­der in court.

But when pro­ceed­ings at Richards Bay Mag­is­trate’s Court were rudely in­ter­rupted by an in­truder lit­er­ally drop­ping in unan­nounced by crash­ing through the ceil­ing, a lit­tle lee­way was al­lowed given the pe­cu­liar cir­cum­stances.

The sur­prise vis­i­tor turned out to be a tiny grey kit­ten of about eight weeks old and not a felon at­tempt­ing a dar­ing escape.

It was quickly as­cer­tained that the kitty was not on the roll for any mis­deeds or a pub­lic pussy riot (with due apol­ogy to the fa­mous fe­male Rus­sian punk rock out­fit).

Per­haps it was just a case of fe­line folly, get­ting lost on the way to the pub­lic gallery.

The kit­ten, no doubt much more fright­ened than any­one in the room, was quickly caught and taken to Richards Bay SPCA.

With no in­juries from his fairly high fall, the feisty lit­tle kit­ten, now mi­nus one of his nine lives, is up for adop­tion and look­ing for a lov­ing home.

He is healthy, has a lovely, friendly per­son­al­ity and would make a won­der­ful fam­ily pet.

Any­one want­ing to adopt this lit­tle kit­ten with a big story and pos­si­bly some ba­sic le­gal knowl­edge, can con­tact the Richards Bay SPCA on 035 753 2086 or visit him at their premises in Bayview Boule­vard, Meerensee.

Strict adop­tion pro­ce­dures and a on­ce­off adop­tion fee ap­plies.
