"An item on computer viruses and more specifically the microchips implanted in dogs and cats caught her attention. She promised herself to look up a book in the library that specialized in this area when she was feeling better. If a cat’s microchip could “crack” a computer code simply by the animal being present in the room, millions of people could have been under surveillance without their knowledge and had their privacy violated continuously. At least dogs are forbidden in nuclear power plants. Regardless, from now on, she’d be more wary of stray cats in the garden."

The Stone Boy, by Sophie Loubiere (copyright  2011, translation copyright 2013, by Nora Mahony; quote is from page 131 of the Grand Central Publishing trade paperback edition, July 2014).
