This is inspired by, but different than the “When Dogs Eat a Person…” thread.
On a radio show, I once heard a claim from a dog person who offered as proof of dogs’ superior virtues, that a study showed that when single pet owners die at home, they are likely to be devoured by cats quicker than dogs. Supposedly, dogs will hold off until they are starving before feasting on their beloved owner’s corpse. Cats, however, will start chowing down with the first pangs of hunger because their deceased owner is nothing but a pile of meat to them.
I call bullshit, but who knows. Does such a study exist? What are your thoughts?
