Satanic Cat Watch: Day Infinity +1

SPOKANE, Washington - The mysterious mewing in Vickie Mendenhall's home started about the time she bought a used couch for $27.

After days of searching for the source of the noise, she found a very hungry calico cat living in her sofa.

The Spokesman-Review reported that her boyfriend, Chris Lund, was watching TV on Tuesday night and felt something move inside the couch. He pulled it away from the wall, lifted it up and found the cat, which apparently had crawled through a small hole on the underside.

Mendenhall contacted the store where she bought the couch, but it had no information on who donated it. So she took the cat to the animal shelter where she works, so it could recover, and contacted media outlets in hopes of finding the owner.

Sure enough, Bob Killion of Spokane showed up to claim the cat on Thursday after an acquaintance alerted him to a TV story about it.

Killion had donated a couch on Feb. 19, and his 9-year-old cat, Callie, disappeared at about the same time.


I'm not sure exactly what's the most disturbing part of this story. The idea that a cat could stow away and get into your home is pretty creepy but at least it didn't croak in there. I can't help but suspect there was some nefarious intent involved. Maybe the previous owner simply wanted to foist his cat off on some poor unsuspecting suckers or it was the cat's plan all along to infiltrate new territory. Just imagine the stench if it ended up dying in there. It would have probably taken days if not weeks to figure out where the smell was coming from.
