Stuff and TVNZ jump the cat

Stuff and TVNZ are reporting that Gareth Morgan's information website on the impact cats have on New Zealand fauna has been hacked, and replaced with a photoshopped picture of a man-cat hunter holding a Morgan-cat. Except cats2go.co.nz doesn't appear to be Morgan's website at all. 

Looking at a previous Stuff story shows that Morgan's actual site is listed as garethsworld.com/catstogo or catstogo.org.nz.

According to the impostor site's domain registry information, it belongs to "Kitty Strangler" of "49 Kittyshorne Terrace" in Christchurch. We very much doubt Morgan's web team would register a domain with such poor cat humour.
