Default Cat at vet clinic knows when other cats are sick

http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-...nclick_check=1

An orange tabby cat that was found injured now lives at a vet clinic,
and 'tells' the staff when other cats and kittens are sick and need
help!

This is a GREAT story!

"Life without cats would be only marginally worth living."
-TC, and the unmercifully, relentlessly, sweet calico kitty, Kenzie.

Every day is a treasure with Kenzie; I try to treat them that way. There
will only be so many, and then there will never, ever, be any more.

How you behave towards cats here below determines your status in Heaven.
- Robert Heinlein

I'd love to read it but it redirects to an https page that says "done" but
is just a blank screen. Tried both IE and Firefox.

This URL works:
http://www.mercurynews.com/pets-anim...ce=most_viewed

so does

http://www.mercurynews.com/pets-anim...nclick_check=1

I suspect the story got moved off the breaking news page to the pets page
and *somebody* didn't observe the web rule that URLs aren't supposed to
change, at least not quickly. Nothing prevented them from assigning a
permanent URL to the story and simply adding the link in one place while
removing it from another ... nothing except a lack of sensitivity to
their users and simple courtesy.

I checked the URL, and it works in Firefox, and Opera:

http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-...nclick_check=1

I have also found some links to news stories that won't work for me, and
I've never found out why.

Did you copy the whole link, and paste it into your browser, rather than
just click on it? Stupid question, but it works sometimes for me.

I love how he helps with socializing ferals. He's a great asset to the
clinic! Which is pretty near to where I work, btw. Maybe I'll go visit
him.

When I click the link, this is the address in my browser:
https://secure.passport.mnginteracti...=1&forced=true

Maybe I'm infected or something.

Maybe the server was down for maintenance or having problems when you
clicked on it the first time. It happens
