Cat is summoned for jury duty in Boston; court rejects owners' appeal to disqualify him: "Anna filed to have her pet disqualified from the service requirement on the grounds he is 'unable to speak and understand English.' She even included a letter from her vet explaining that Sal is not a human being but a 'domestic short-haired neutered feline,' WHDH reported.
The court rejected the request, and as things stand, Sal will have to report for duty to Suffolk Superior Crown Court in Boston on March 23.
And what if Sal the cat is asked to weigh in on a case?
'He'll probably do a meow for the answer,' Anna said."
