Cat juror /Photolibrary

A cat has been summoned to do jury service in the US - even after his owners pointed out he was "unable to speak and understand English".

Anna Esposito, wrote to Suffolk Superior Crown Court in Boston, to explain that a mistake had been made, reports the Daily Telegraph.

But a jury commissioner replied insisting that the cat, named Tabby Sal, "must attend" on March 23.

Mrs Esposito had included a letter from her vet confirming that the cat was "a domestic short-haired neutered feline".

Tabby Sal had been entered by Mrs Esposito under the 'pets' section of the last census.

She asked: "When they ask him guilty or not guilty? What's he supposed to say - miaow?

"Sal is a member of the family so I listed him on the last Census form under pets but there has clearly been a mix-up."

A website for the US judicial system states that jurors are "not expected to speak perfect English".

I don't recall a "pets" section on the last census. This story doesn't have the smell of truth.
