Cats: Nothing but Trouble

It’s lights out for cat at power station –

A cat picked the wrong place to come in from the cold, and caused a power outage that blacked out more than 12,000 homes and businesses.

The cat entered an electrical substation, snuggled up to a warm transformer and contacted a live circuit, causing a short that killed the cat and blew out nine electrical feeder lines Monday afternoon, Idaho Power officials said.
