The cat was spotted on a garden plant of Mussanda at the
rest house in Miao,Arunachal Pradesh

The "cat" in question is actually a caterpillar...but the mention of a cat from a place called Miao set me laughing when the mail was quite a serious one! :)))

I never knew that there WAS a place called Miao...I can just imagine myself going to the travel agent, and him saying, "Where do you want to go?" and I reply "Miao", and he says, "When you finish your animal impersonations, will you tell me where you want to go?"....
