The main objective of this project is to control cats and to train them for gaining necessary information about the other sources. In this project, the American government had wasted almost 20 million dollars of Taxpayers, and after that, a cat was developed with an antenna wire along the spine, the microphone inside the ear canal and transmitter and power supply inside her hairs. Unfortunately, the whole idea of controlling cats was failed because, at the very first time when she came out, she was bumped by the car.
