“No matter if it’s a black cat, or a white cat, as long as it’s a cat that catches mice: It’s a good cat!” –Deng, Xiao-Ping
In XinJiang, a town near Hoten is using an army of cats to combat their rat problems. Reminds me of that one episode of the Simpsons. So far at least, it seems to be working. The original article the above blog post was mentioning, seems as if it was meant to make the Chinese happy about subjugating the Uighurs under their rule. As if somehow, this is a sign of progress under Chinese rule.
At least it’s a happier article about XinJiang compared to another article I read about that province earlier, where several people died after having used vinegar previously stored in anti-freeze containers.
