'I'll come out when all this is over!'

The Cat Conservation Club is the UK's leading feline welfare charity and each year helps almost 200,000 cats and kittens through it's national network of over 250 volunteer-run branches.

The club have been forced to take legal action to prevent constant use in the media of the term 'Fat-Cats', which is frequently used to describe over-paid employees, usually bankers or public-sector executives.

Ms.Tabatha (Tabby)Tonkinese, the current President of the club, is extremely angry and upset with the whole business.

'I am extremely angry and upset with the whole business', she said earlier today. 'Cats are extremely loving, lithe and graceful creatures and yet the term 'Fat-Cats' has been adopted to reflect greed, avarice and selfishness, characteristics that we now consider apply to those individuals who claim exorbitant salaries, usually to the detriment of others.'

Ms. Tonkinese was reluctant to suggest an alternative creature to use as a metaphor. 'To associate these greedy, self-obsessed, over-paid individuals with any of God's creatures would be inappropriate'. she said.

'My suggestion is that we just call them what they are 'Fat-Greedy Bastards!'

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
