Save the cosmos!

U.S. streets could soon be over-run with cats if communities fail to get a handle on growing feline populations, a veterinary medicine researcher says.

This reminds me of how the cosmos was saved thanks to someone having killed 52 houseflies 11 years earlier. How? The flies' 9.550892 x 10357 descendants would have occupied a cube about 3.45 x10100 parsecs on a side. (Our own galaxy is a mere 25-30 parsecs across.)

As Cecil says,
The second law of thermodynamics, simply put, is as follows: left to themselves, things tend to go to hell in a handbasket.
