Sources aboard the HMS Tungsten tell The Fluffington Post that Admiral Jens, the first feline admiral of the British navy, has suppressed a mutiny aboard his flagship.

“Some of the sailors weren’t keen on taking orders from a cat,” says one source, who asked to be quoted anonymously for his own safety. “Admiral Jens made some unpopular decisions, and a few guys started talking about usurping his command. But the Admiral wouldn’t stand for it. He made an example of them pretty quickly. They’re all locked up in the brig now.”

The tactic worked. A corroborating source says that murmurs of mutiny have subsided completely, and everyone is back to work. Admiral Jens could not be reached for comment, but many consider this a victory for feline sailors everywhere.
