Bomb squad finds Schrodingers Cat alive
A mysterious box appeared in a parking lot at Erie Community College campus in Amherst, N.Y., last Friday afternoon. The state police bomb squad responded and took an x-ray of the sealed box, which showed a cat inside! Police turned the cat over to the local SPCA. Gina Browning of the Tonawanda SPCA says the cat is okay. The cat was not malnourished, not dehydrated, didnt need any kind of veterinary care. So, it had a happy ending. What concerns me is the people capable of doing this might be capable of doing something worse, Browning said. Just who would put a cat in a taped up box and leave it in a parking lot remains a mystery at this point. Capt. Camilleri said, Right now it doesnt appear theres really much to follow up on. It didnt have any identification on the box or anything like that. The upside to this is that the cat, named Truffle, is fine, healthy and back with her owner. Tracking down the person responsible is unlikely, if not impossible. If found, the persons responsible could be charged with animal cruelty. Even Schrodinger never wanted to try his famous thought experiment on a real cat.
