Many people believe that cats may be psychic (or just psycho), but a cat in Russia may be able to predict the future. Now a white cat named Achilles who normally keeps down mice at Saint Petersburg’s famed Hermitage museum has begun work as the official forecaster for the Confederations Cup hosted by Russia.
Achilles makes predictions by choosing between bowls of food decked with national flags. He previously correctly predicted that Russia would beat New Zealand last week. Perhaps Achilles can one day predict the stock market, the lottery, and roulette wheels in casinos. When he can do that, then he’ll be the most famous cat in the world.
