Mass. cat gets jury duty summons

By Washington Post Editors

UPDATE: This story first ran about a year ago but was mistakenly reposted by various news organizations, including this one. Here's the Boston Globe's account, which notes that the cat's name was included on a city, not U.S., census.

ORIGINAL POST: A woman's pet cat has been summoned for jury duty in Boston, according to reports:

The issue arose after Sal's owners, Anna and Guy Esposito, listed him on the last U.S. Census under "pet."
Residents are submitted to the list by street address and Sal Esposito may have gotten mixed in with his human neighbors.
