A domestic cat answering to the name of 'Pilgrim" or "Pidgy-noyns" went on the rampage in Maidstone earlier today. A prominent vet said the animal had evidently been "bitten by a radioactive spider" or "exposed to freaky gamma radiation" or had even possibly "passed through some kind of strange fog during a boating excursion" as very little else could credibly explain the size increase.
Police were eventually able to pacify the cat using horse tranquilisers cunningly concealed inside a specially fabricated tin of Whiskas the size of a gas holder. Nine out of ten house owners said they preferred him that way.
