Buddhist Bank Robber Cat Visitation Case

According to that bastion of conservative British journalism, the Daily Telegraph, a German Buddhist named Peter Koenig, now serving time for armed bank robbery, filed a motion for visitations by his cat, on the grounds that the cat is the reincarnation of his deceased mother.

The court denied the motion, saying: "While we respect the religious freedom of individuals, the accused has not been able to furnish proof that his deceased mother has been reborn in a cat. Therefore, the request for visiting rights for the feline is rejected."

All sentient beings have, at one time or another, been our mothers.
