"Run for help, boy!"

"fark you. Where's the food? Oh, and you'll be sharing your body heat with me."

I read that as "Missing Hitler" found in the woods. Oh well.

She is lucky they found her, the cat likely had noticed that she was getting weaker and less able to defend herself. I can tell my cats sometimes look at me like they are waiting for me to die so they can eat me.

I now have no idea where I got 42 days. I was in fact drunk when I submitted this.

//I fail.

Antifun: the cat was doing better than she was, it was just waiting for her to get a little weaker...

Well, since there is already an element of cat vs. dog in this thread, I'll just throw this out there.

buckler: Pssst...humans can eat cat food too...

So how many cats did she have when she started?

"Authorities aren't sure what Page ate after she ran out of food"

What she's not saying is that she started out with 2 cats.

belhade: "Her cat was in better shape than she was," Marc Levesque, incident commander with New Mexico State Police Search and Rescue, told The Associated Press. "Her cat was also hunting. (Page) ran out of food a while back."

I take a cat hiking in the woods with me, biatch better get me some squirrels or chipmunks.

I had the same thought -- my cat always used to hunt for me and leave tasty mice in my shoes. If I had needed tasty mice this would have been useful.

libranoelrose: TheHopeDiamond: Mentally ill, maybe - but dangit she loves that cat. And that's cute.

The cat is probably the one that kept her alive.

UsikFark: I hear people eat cock and pussy all the time.

No one on Fark is that perverted.

Clearly you haven't met Ghastly.

I submitted this 2 days ago with a "should have taken a left turn at Albequerque" headline. Mods must not be old enough to remember any cartoons before My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake.

Hiker should have eaten the cat food. Cats can live on anything.

trappedspirit: I think people forgot how to hike. I guess she wasn't educated in public school where they teach the buddy system.

Two lost people is better than one?

In other news, there is a forest in New Mexico. Now I'm wondering of there are jungles on Hoth or ice caps on Dagobah.

libranoelrose: ladyfortuna: libranoelrose: ladyfortuna: Sadly I can't remember where I saved the cell phone pictures from hikes, but this is close enough.

Cats cants can't hunt that welll.

On one of the hikes, we approached a wood pile near the maple syrup boiling shed, and he went bounding off after a chipmunk which he caught in about 20 seconds of effort. Not the first time, not the last. Many cats don't care to hunt since they've swindled us into feeding them regularly, but mine? Mine can, will, and enjoys the hunt. He's nearly eight now and still attacks things like a kitten. I only wish he could get the rodents out of the walls, but he did grab two from the basement before they wised up.

I used to have a cat that could catch anything.

She's, sadly, gone now.

These new generations are barely able to scare a robin out of the yard.

I had a cat who, at 12 yrs old, had to have his eyes removed due to disease. A year later he got out, ran up the hill and came back down about 2 min later with a ground squirrel.

The cat was just waiting for her to die so it could eat her soft body parts.

I'd like to, he's kinda cute....

I'm just kinda wondering if she was feeling stranded before they towed her car?

Okay, she's teh crazy. But was she lost, or did she know perfectly well where she was and just see no need to go back somewhere with, you know, food and shelter and doctors and stuff?

I wonder what she was thinking.
2012-03-10 04:43:45 PM  

9beers: The article fails to mention that she had 12 cats when she started out.

Came here to post this.
