Thomas the kitty is very worried. In particular, he is terrified that the world is going to end on December 21, as predicted by numerous misinterpretations of the Mayan calendar. According to some reports, Thomas has refused to leave his bedroom for the past week.
“We told him that in all likelihood that world wasn’t going to end this week,” said Hugh Hamilton, a source close to the situation. ”But that just made him more worked up. He’s a very superstitious cat, and now he’s convinced we’ve jinxed it.”
