Mikhail Galin lost a cat and mouse game with Aeroflot just because he boasted about his apparent victory on social media.

His 22-pound cat was too big to go onboard his 8-hour flight from Moscow to Vladivosok and he didn’t want it go in the cargo hold. So he borrowed someone else’s (lighter) cat just for the checkin.

They made it but when he posted on Facebook, Aeroflot found out and confiscated his 400,000 frequent flyer miles. Cat lovers (and cats – headed by Britain’s ‘Chief Mouser’) weren’t happy.

Today on the markets the ASX Small Ords is up 0.53 per cent to 2,926 points, while the ASX 200 is up 0.43 per cent 6,764 points.

 

Going up

Blockchain micro-cap Fatfish Blockchain (ASX:FFG) gained 40 per cent thanks to a major tie up with a Swedish tech group.
