"The cat won't allow him anywhere near its kittens..." "Bloody Burmese!!" 12 May, 2008

Reference Number: DCDL-0006447

Shows a scene in a suburban kitchen. A man stands at the sink doing the dishes while a small boy weeps. The child's mother tells her husband that he is upset because the cat (a malevolent-looking Burmese) won't let him near her kittens. The domestic scene illustrates the behaviour of the Myanmar military junta which is reluctant to allow foreign aid into the country to assist in rescue efforts after the devastation caused by Cyclone Nargis on May 3, 2008. There is a play on the term 'Burmese cat' and 'Burma' which is the name Myanmar was known by before the military takeover.
