Ceiling Cat has seen fit to give cats nine lives, and the Telegraph and PuffHo report on Andrea, a cat that used up two of hers in rapid succession. Placed twice in a gas chamber at an animal shelter to be euthanized as an unwanted stray, she survived both times, and has finally found a home.
Andrea twice survived being gassed with carbon monoxide. The second time, she was thought to be dead and placed in a cooler, but she survived that too. That she lived through being gassed twice suggests it wasn’t merely luck. Can anyone suggest what attributes of a cat might render it resistant to carbon monoxide?
Shelter volunteers want to switch to sodium pentobarbital, which they regard as more humane and more certain in its action.
