The David Walliams swim a week or two back reminded me of the time in the 1960s when two cats competed in a cross-channel swim.
A French moggy named 'Un-Deux-Trois' was pitted against an English challenger, a tabby called 'One-Two-Three'. On 19 July, 1968, in large open cages towed behind boats, they set off from near Dover.
Who won ?
The English cat. Because ...
The "Un-Deux-Trois" cat sank.
