It seems that cats are just getting more and more wily these days. As this news story details, an unsuspecting family was recently shocked to find that a couch they bought at the Spokane Value Village was harboring a female cat that had been “trapped” inside the piece of furniture for upwards of 12 days.
First thing’s first: I’m never shopping at the Spokane Value Village again. I’ve often been disturbed by the large amounts of unwashed tee shirts this thrift store has been peddling. I once bought a Monopoly set from them, and there was no steamboat (what’s the point?!). But this is definitely the last straw.
More important than my issue with the SVV is the fact that this is just the beginning of a massive onslaught by feline invaders. The following are just a few disturbing examples of this trend that my devoted readers were good enough to send for your edification.
Dayton, Ohio – Used television purchased on eBay. Cat emerged after three-and a half weeks, then smothered the family’s grandmother as she slept through her soaps.
Hoboken, New Jersey – Movie theater popcorn hid a kitten for 15 minutes. Kitten was thankfully stopped before doing any major damage.
NY, NY – Kitten found in banana purchased at Starbucks on 53rd St. between 5th and 6th Avenues. It was no longer alive, but had been perfectly preserved by the banana itself. Starbucks issued a formal apology.
