When you’re out driving do you ever think about what the people in all those other cars are doing? Well, maybe it’s a good thing not to find out.
Last weekend Gary Korkuc (seriously, real name!) blew through a stop sign in front of the Po-Po, who pulled him over, salivating at the thought of a juicy fine. It turns out they weren’t the only ones licking their lips as when the cops approached Korkuc’s truck they discovered he had a passenger, his cat, Navarro. Realizing that to be a hispanic-sounding name, the cops asked for the cat’s identification to ensure that he was in the country legally. It was then that they realized that Korkuc had actually been marinating Navarro in olive oil, salt, and crushed red peppers, preparatory to cooking him up and eating the fury meatball.
Korkuc claimed that Navarro was ‘ill tempered’ and, in retaliation for that obviously cat-like behavior, he was going to show the cat who’s the boss, and the inside of a 350° oven. When he also told them that the obviously neutered male cat had come down with a bad case of the babies, they decided to take him in, postponing his picnic.
Navarro was handed over to the local ASPCA chapter, who promised not to add him to the antipasto bar. Cleaned up, he’s is now safe from his gastro-nut owner, who faces animal cruelty charges on top of the traffic fine. If you would like to
eat adopt Navarro, he’s now available from the Buffalo ASPCA.
