Monty and Afridi's Ashes prediction

They say that the animals are always the first to know, so let's ask them: Who is going to win the Ashes?

You've already met our cat Afridi. Meet his brother, Monty.

Now the premise is simple. Every possible Ashes result is represented by a foodstuff. Whichever foodstuff Monty and Afridi select will be the outcome of the series.

An England win is represented by some tuna fish, the draw by some cat biscuits and a win for Australia is represented by a leaf of lollo rosso. It's time to decide...

Monty's first to make his decision. He immediately plumps for an England win. Hurray!

Afridi also goes for an England win. It's unanimous. The animals have spoken: England will win the Ashes!

Monty and Afridi subsequently revealed that they consider the draw to be a possible outcome, but they didn't even think about an Australian win. In fact they spurned it altogether in favour of going to stare at the settee for a while.

Talking as a qualified political scientist...just what are the cats' favourite food?

Because if you try and rig a poll, then the insects will get you.

Speaking a a member of the scientical community, I find your methodology impeccable. Have a PhD on Zoopsychology from the dreaming spires of Tooting Bec University.

As a side note, Russel Crowe was on BBC radio 4's Today programme saying that the aussies were going to beat us to a pulp.

There is no fault in this experiment: Lollo rosso is a very posh lettuce and tuna is a not-particularly-nice fish.
