100 thoughts on “Cat Expert Explains Why Some Cats Eat Human Corpses | WIRED

  1. Why is anyone surprised by this? When you die; you're essentially meat. Their survival instinct kicks in and they eat the meat, especially, if it is readily available, which means less risk to them of getting hurt while hunting prey

  2. The question is, do dead people it cats?
    If so is there evidence of a cat biten by a dead and survived to tell us their story?
    Please contact me if you have proof of such a event.

  3. I have 19 cats…. I'm well aware that they would make a meal out of my corpse if I died and they were hungry… They are meat eaters… This can't surprise anyone. Even a dog would… Even birds…. Ummmm if you were locked up with no food, you'd eat a friend too….

  4. To be fair I'd probably eat my dog and cat too if I had to. Maybe less my dog since he can hunt, but if I'm trapped in a box with them, I'm gonna eat them and not enjoy them

  5. If dogs are more often the culprits behind Human consumption, WHY PUT MORE BLAME ON CATS?
    I can’t tell you the number of conversations I’ve had with dog owners who have just point blank said my cats don’t love me and are plotting to kill and eat me, cats don’t need anymore of this bias against them!
    I don’t think I’ve met a cat owner who hates dogs but I’ve met plenty of dog owners who hate cats.

  6. mikel delgado: i don't want people to have a more negative perception of cats

  7. A lot of the information was repeated multiple times. This was a poorly constructed video and with a clear bias. 👎🏽

  8. I’d want my cat to eat me if it was for his own survival and I was already dead. I’m more than okay with that. I’d want him to do it.

  9. I'm not at all disturbed by the idea. I would only hope that it wouldn't be held against them. Hope someone would look after them for me.

  10. Dogs would do the same. Cats and dogs are carnivores. BTW people slaughtered and ate their pets in war times, in Asia they still do.

  11. FFS, If I am dead alone, I will not mind my cat or dog eat m to stay alive. I worry about their well-being than my dead body. Just I worry no one will adopt them after they eat me.
    My best guess is my corgis will sadden to death and my cats will happily chow me to the bone.

  12. Basically dogs and cats aren't sentient they are just on evolutionary auto pilot they have no sense of cultural constraints etc Etc or a sense of loyalty it's just all programmed into thier dna

  13. It's feel like final gift.Goodbye my beloved cats😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭

  14. When people are feeding their cat plant and making them vegan, I think they deserve to be eaten by their cats for that alone.

  15. If i died and my cat was stuck in the house for a long time, I would be proud that my remains would sustain her until her rescue.

  16. I'd say most pet guardians would be fine if they sustained themselves after being stuck in a house after their guardians died.

  17. How is this such a surprise? Cats eat meat and would rather eat some meat that is readily available than go out and try to hunt. This goes for basically every meat-eating animal ever. Why would a carnivore not go for an easy meal instead of hunting and possibly getting injured?

  18. Reminds me of the practice of "sky funerals" some practice where birds and other elements of nature consume a human corpse. If my cat wants to eat my corpse, I would not hold it against her in any way. Heck, it is almost romantic in a morbid way and that is fine with me.

  19. If There wouldnt have been enough food throughout past centuries for us humans. Pets would not have become Pets. But saturday-stew

  20. Nothing wrong with your cat eating you when you die. My problem with cats is that they are by far the number one cause of death to songbirds, more than cars, petroleum, windows and agriculture, combined.
