Cat Jury Duty - Boston Kitty Denied Disqualification, Expected at Court

An East Boston cat has been called to jury duty. Will the kitty be able to perform his civic duty? Even though he has asked to be excused Sal Esposito (a real life four-legged feline) is expected to show up for court and render judgment on someone in Massachusetts.
The family believes that Sal may be thought to be "human" as they included him on the census form. According to MSNBC News, on the last Census form, Anna Esposito listed him under pets. 'I just wrote 'Sal Esposito', scratched out the 'dog,' and wrote, 'cat,'' said Anna, according to the report.
Once the jury summons arrived at the residence, Anna filed for Sal's disqualification of service, but the jury commissioner said no! Now what?
The report adds, "Sal's service date at Suffolk Superior Court is set for March 23. Anna said that if the issue isn't cleared up by then, she will simply have to bring the cat to court."
