Why is www.google.cat resolving?

Hello,

I am seeing that www.google.cat resolves from three different networks.
It even resolves from here: http://www.squish.net/dnscheck/

What is going on?

Thanks,

Tim

A quick google and wikipedia check shows...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.cat

.cat is a sponsored top-level domain intended to be used to highlight the Catalan language and culture. Its policy has been developed by ICANN and Fundaci├│ puntCAT. It was approved in September 2005.

Because .CAT is a valid TLD:
   .cat - Wikipedia

Why are you expecting it not to?

New trend on NANOG? Complaining when things work and not when they
fail?

I think the real question here is why does schroedingers.cat not resolve, and who will be the first person able to jump through the requisite hoops make it do so.

That's because ".cat" has IDN and therefore it should be
schr´┐Żdingers.cat
