Mice may be responsible for a blaze that killed nearly 100 cats at an animal shelter near the Canadian city of Toronto, officials say

Looks like Jerry wins again.

Business is booming!

For Focus Ireland, anyway.

The homeless charity reports a 13% increase in demand for its services.

…this year we have already supported over 6,000 people. This shows a sharp rise in demand for our services of 13 per cent (over 700 people) which is made up of people who are homeless and others at serious risk of becoming homeless.

Slims down the HSE, that is.

It’s official!

But that’s just legal jargon for, “Brian Lenihan is a muppet”.
