Day Two of Cat Week here on the Reuters Tumblr. Here’s your cat fact and cat photo of the day.
Cat fact: Cats once busted an espionage event at the Holland embassy in Moscow, Russia. Two Siamese cats, much to the annoyance of their owners, kept clawing at the walls of the building and meowing. The cat owners investigated and found microphones inside the walls hidden by Russian spies. The cats apparently heard the microphones when they were activated. [source]

We hereby dub this “Cat Week” on the Reuters Tumblr. Why? Because we can.
