Where’s Mrs. Veal—That Cat Lady?

Not for the faint of heart!!

When Janet Veal hadn't been seen for a while, the officials were notified.

Travel down this lovely country road and you'll find her house.


They had to use a ladder to get into the house for some reason, and found a dead dog, a dead cat, and several live cats.

What had the animals been living on?

Parts of Mrs. Veal.

Her partially eaten body was disconcerting for the officer who discovered her and the coroner who determined she died of natural causes.

Here's the link to the official story from the Daily News.


What's the lesson? Don't have a heart-attack with a house full of animals if you want an open casket?

Or is there another lesson?

How horrible. The poor animals didn't have much choice. People have resorted to the same thing in dire situations, the Donner party, the plane crash survivors in the movie 'Alive', animals can't be held to a higher standard than us.

A bit of Veal with a nice arugula and basil salad. How could they resist?

Oh my, this is just awful. But animals have the instinct to survive, no matter what.
