Friday Catblogging: 20 Hungry Cats Devour Dead Russian Owner

Henry Holloway of The Sun reports Woman EATEN by 20 pet cats after collapsing dead – as cops don’t find decomposing body for two weeks:

A woman was eaten by her 20 cats after she collapsed at her home and was not discovered by cops for two weeks.

Police were horrified when they discovered the partially eaten remains of the woman – who has not been named – after receiving a call from a concerned co-worker.

The woman was a cat breeder who kept the 20 giant Maine Coon pedigree cats in her home.

Cops were alerted by one of her employees who said she could not contact her boss.

Inside her home, police found her partially eaten body surrounded by the hungry cats.

Police believe she had been dead for two weeks as they probed her decomposing remains.

She was found at the property in Bataysk, Rostov region, Russia.

“The cats were left alone on their own for two weeks, there was no food, so what else to eat?” said one animal rescue expert who cared for some of the surviving cats.

“It’s understandable right? They ate what there was.”

Perfectly understandable. Cats need a high-protein diet.

Let it not be said — because it would be false to say — that there’s no good news in all this. The Sun reports that “some of the healthier cats have now been rehomed to new owners for just £29 each.” That works out to a re-homing fee of only $35.60 — a bargain if ever there were one.
