Passive smoking could kill your cat, reports the Times:

American researchers, writing in the American Journal of Epidemiology, studied
180 cats and say passive smoking affects them as much as it does humans. Which is good news if you are a sparrow: British scientists say the cat is the "prime suspect" in the disappearance of the house sparrow from the country, reports the Independent. It runs a cartoon of a poster on a tree: "Wanted, Tiddles, for sparrowcide."
