Your cat will eat you after you die
« on: January 15, 2020, 10:50:51 PM »
Cats WILL eat a dead human given the chance, scientists find, after feral felines manage to slip into grounds of forensic research center to feast on the flesh of bodies left outside

    Researchers left more than 40 bodies outside a facility in the name of science
    They were studying how bodies decompose, but were interrupted by two cats
    The team watched the cats sneak onto the campus and eat two of the bodies
    They preferred to eat the soft tissue in the arms and shoulders of the bodies



It seems maggots are not the only creatures with a taste for human flesh – cats also enjoy dining on the dead.

While studying how human bodies decompose, researchers observed two feral felines feasting on the corpses left outside Colorado Mesa University's Forensic Investigation Research Station for nearly 35 days straight.

Although the pair had a buffet of more than 40 different bodies to choose from, they returned to the same body each night - one was a 70-year-old man and the other a 79-year-old woman.

Researchers found the cats preferred soft tissue, especially in the shoulder and arm,

The Colorado Mesa University's Forensic Investigation Research Station is a facility known as a 'body farm' that uses donated corpses for research and teaching.

However, they spotted two feral cats wandering into the area savaging for food. The cats did not travel together.

The study reports that a 'striped cat' breached security and was observed consuming a body that belonged to a 79-year old woman.

The team placed the body under a cage so not to disturb their own study, which kept the cat away until the cage was taken off – the striped animal returned shortly after to munch on the body.
Researchers found the cats preferred soft tissue of the shoulder and arm, differential consumption of tissue layers and superficial defects. However, team noted that these patterns are more like a bobcat scavenging for food rather than that of domestic cats

Researchers found the cats preferred soft tissue of the shoulder and arm, differential consumption of tissue layers and superficial defects. However, team noted that these patterns are more like a bobcat scavenging for food rather than that of domestic cats.

A second cat, which was all-black, came trotting along shortly after, but scientists let him have a go until he had his fill.

This feline chose the remains of a 70-year-old man that was outside the facility for almost a week.

Researchers found it had a taste for the left side of the body, preferring the arm and abdomen. Experts found that although the cats had a buffet of more than 40 bodies from which to choose, each one returned to the corpse it had selected again and again.

And the two also showed a preference to soft tissue that had previously been damaged.


'Any coroner or medical examiner will tell you of cases where a body was shut up with a pet that scavenged the owner eventually,' Connor said.

A cat behavior researcher at the University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Mikel Delgado, was not also surprised by this behavior.

She wrote in her blog about a time when she was working at an animal shelter and 'a cat that came in when her owner had died, and the report said that she'd eaten the person's nose,' said Delgado, who wrote on her blog about the Colorado scavenging.

'It's not a behavior problem. It's just a fact of life.'

I see this as a good thing so the pets will survive till they are found.

They didn't study if stray dogs would do the same.


This cat will search for spare change when you die.

There has been news that dogs has eaten owners after their death. I think that is a good thing really. If they can have also water they can survive alive till someone founds and shelters them.
