there's a high probability that they thought it was cute and funny to put the picture of a growling cat with the assumed cute and funny title cat-astrophe. if that is the case, i'm afraid whomever responsible for it ought to be forcibly neutered as we have more than enough idiots to contend with.

Hi Lechatrouge,

The growling white cat photo featured on Today World News segment "Bird Flu puzzle in Indonesia" dated 28th October, was not punned by TODAY newspaper -- it was also featured few days ago on foreign news site. It mentioned that the white cat is on sale at a roadside pet stall in Jakarta.

A photo of different cat (ginger coloured Persian cat) peering from its cage at a roadside pet stall in Jakarta (probably at same place), appeared a day earlier, in Today newspaper under its Health page dated 27th October and in worldwide AFP / Yahoo! News - titled "Indonesia, puzzled over bird flu cases, investigates cats as spreaders".

Hence no pun intended by Singapore Today newspapers ... blamed it on foreign media!

Poor cats! They are always blamed on most diseases.
Let's not forget there was feline holocaust in Singapore, during the SARS crisis in 2003, hope this don't happen again.
