Cat food and import bills – this week in Pakistan’s business and economics twitterverse

The nation’s pet owners were up in arms this past week as it appeared that the government was banning pet food along with a number of other ‘luxury imports’ to try and decrease the import bill and save precious dollars. The intellectual integrity of this plan aside, we’re sure cats and dogs everywhere will have been happy to hear that they won’t have to slum it. Of course, less important issues were also on the social media agenda this week, such as the economy faltering and a deepingin political crisis in the country. We bring you all this and more in this week’s social media roundup.

This is the stuff nightmares are made of


Why do we make even the most mundane exercises controversial?
