Kitty Lineup Fails to Identify Suspect
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It was a routine procedure - but it had never been done with cats.
"We got the call late last Thursday," said Detective Dan Houser of the Topeka Police Department. "A woman was in her home and a cat just came in and started knocking things over. Naturally, she was terrified. We brought her in and did a police lineup."
To fill the feline rogues gallery, a collection of kitty ne’er-do-wells was corralled - along with the actual suspect.
"It didn’t help at all," says houser. "As it turns out, cats all look more or less alike. After a while, we had to let them all go."
Despite the setback, the TPD is confident they’ll get their cat.
"We’re going to do a sting operation," says Houser. "I can’t say much, but it involves a big plate of tuna. Actually, that’s basically all it is."

Cat’s Singing Disturbs Housemates
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
It was a seemingly peaceful apartment. Then, Jerry discovered his love of showtunes.
"He started off with Phantom, then Rent," says Drew Farber, a friend of the cat. “His housemates were annoyed, but didn’t raise much of a fuss. Then he got into Les Mis.”
Soon, Jerry’s incessant renditions of “I Dreamed a Dream” and “One Day More” became too much to bear. 
"His housemates confronted him about it," says Farber. "They reached an agreement after that - no Broadway during naptime. Since that pretty much covered any time of day, everybody was good. I still have no idea how he never heard of Cats.”

Sleep Researchers Determine that Cat Naps Are the Most Restful
By Anna Washenko, FluffPo Correspondent
Despite the recent hype about coffee naps, sleep researchers from the University of Wisconsin have found that the best way to snooze is a cat nap. The team found that their feline test subject, a cat named Wookie, was the best rested and most relaxed of all participants, easily besting their human, badger, marmoset, hummingbird and manatee subjects.
“Wookie’s sleeping habits have been of interest in the field for quite some time,” lead investigator Angela Fanness said. “We wanted to take the time to really delve deep into the duration and frequency of his cat naps, and see how they impact his well-being.” 
Fanness explained that the study confirmed long-held suspicions about the benefits of cat napping.
“We found a direct correlation between minutes spent cat napping and happiness,” she said. “Wookie spent the most time sleeping. The naps did have a slightly adverse impact on his weight, but that was the only negative response he had.” 
Results were published in the peer-reviewed journal, Scientific Sleep.
