An English family was reunited with their cat after six years when a family member spotted the feline on an adoption site. But how?
Kat wonders:

This might be a stupid question: How do they know it is the same cat? In the other case, there was one of those ID chips but that doesn't seem to be the case here.

whothewhatnow responds:

I believe the cat mentioned in his adoption profile that his favorite Weezer album was Pinkerton. There's only so many English tabbies that could be.

whothewhatnow, not hilarity not complete, then adds:

The added payoff for me is that it reminded me to stop mourning the loss of my Pinkerton cassette years ago and get it on my mp3 player ASAP. That tabby was right - it really is their best album.
