While the rest of the world sat on pins and needles, waiting the birth of a future king or queen of England, a Fremont cat rested on his pillow, assured that he already knew the answer to the big question.
Months ago, Mr. Nuts, the amazing prognosticating cat, had predicted that Will and Kate would have themselves a little prince. And early this afternoon, we learned that Mr. Nuts was again correct.
Mr. Nuts, owned by the parents of pet furniture entrepreneur Michael Ostrofsky, has an amazing, if slightly unsavory, record of predicting the future. To put it bluntly, Ostrofsky labels two litter boxes -- in this case, marked prince and princess -- and which ever one Mr. Nuts uses to relieve himself, is the loser. He pooped in the princess box, and lo, it was to be.
The tuxedo cat has correctly predicted the outcome of three Super Bowls, one presidential race and now, the future monarch of Great Britain.
Mr. Nuts plan to move to Ohio next month, but he has no intention of putting away his litter legacy.
