Alice loved her cat. He was everything to her – friend, companion, substitute child and hot water bottle, so when he went missing she howled. Alice enlisted the help of a detective agency to find her peripatetic feline.
It seems that the cat was missing because it had been eaten by a python. Fortunately, Nedum - the rural farmer in Nigeria, whose chamber pot the bulging snake was occupying while the slithery creature digested his meal - ran off, called some neighbors, and they killed the python. Well, that is what usually happens when the python is digesting a hen or goat or a cat, it had previously eaten.
A day later, Alice's cat was returned to her, a little soggy and sans several lives, but otherwise none the worse for wear.
