Adding to the fun of pet ownership...
A Phoenix forensic pathologist
gave a presentation and noted the following tidbits about her line
of work: Cats get up into your face at night to check and see if you're still breathing
. She had seen numerous occasions where little old ladies
had been found days later sans
face, and nearby a contented fuzzball who looked no worse for not having been fed meow mix
for a while.
Smaller breeds of dogs were also more likely to chew
on their deceased owners. She made a point about cocker spaniel
s in particular. The larger breeds of dogs which were said to have been particular
ly well behaved would suffer while waiting for food without nibbling on eternal
ly sleeping master.
