Kidnappers are rarely interested in Animals, but they recently took considerable interest in Mrs Eleanor Ramsay‘s cat. Mrs Eleanor Ramsay, a very wealthy old lady,has shared a flat with her cat, Rastus, for a great many years. Rastus leads an orderly life. He usually takes a short walk in the evenings and is always home by seven o‘clock. One evening, however, he failed to arrive. Mrs Ramsay got very worried. She looked everywhere for him but could not find him.  Three day after Rastus‘ disappearance, Mrs Ramsay received an anonymous letter. The writer stated that Rastus was in safe hands and would be returned immediately if Mrs Ramsay paid a ransom of &1000. Mrs Ramsay was instructed to place the money in a cardboard box and to leave it outside her door. At first, she decided to go to the police, but fearing that she would never see Rastus again --the letter had made that quite clear--she changed her mind. She drew &1000 from her bank and followed the kidnapper‘s instructions. The next morning, the box had disappeared but Mrs Ramsay was sure that the kidnapper would keep his word. Sure enough, Rastus arrived punctually at seven o‘clock that evening. He looked very well, though he was rather thirsty, for he drank half a bottle of milk. The police were astounded when Mrs Ramsay told them what she had done. She explained that Rastus was very dear to her. Considering the amount she paid, he was dear in more ways than one! 

 

notes:

   绑架者对动物不感兴趣,但最近他们对埃莉诺·拉姆齐太太的猫很感兴趣。埃莉诺·拉姆齐太太是一位非常富有的老妇人,多年来,她和她的猫拉斯都住在一起。拉斯特斯过着有序的生活。他通常在晚上走一小段路,总是在七点钟以前回家。可是有一天晚上,他没来。拉姆齐太太很担心。她到处找他,但找不到他。拉斯特斯失踪3天后,拉姆齐太太收到一封匿名信。这位作家说拉斯特斯是安全的,如果拉姆齐太太付了1000英镑赎金,他就会立即返回。拉姆齐太太被指示把钱放在一个纸盒里,然后把它放在门外。起初,她决定去找警察,但又担心再也见不到拉斯特斯了——这封信已经说得很清楚了——她改变了主意。她从银行取出1000英镑,然后按照绑匪的指示走了。第二天早上,盒子不见了,但拉姆齐太太确信绑架者会遵守诺言。果然,那天晚上七点钟,拉斯特斯准时到了。他看上去很好,尽管他口渴得很,因为他喝了半瓶牛奶。当拉姆齐太太把她所做的事告诉警察时,警察大吃一惊。她解释说拉斯特斯非常爱她。考虑到她所付的钱,他在很多方面都比一个人好
