Found dead, eaten by catsPage 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Ok some great advice on here, I'm making up my own death survival lists:
1. NO pets
2. Spend all your money first
3. Annoy your neignbors. That way they'll notice when you're gone

and my own addition...
4. Always wear pants!

Love this thread.
I spent 30 years in upstate NY.
My house was 1/2 mile off the road in the woods with no neighbors in sight..
The lady I lived with left in 2002
After that people would ask what happens if something horrible happens to me
I'd say Mac (my 85 pound black lab) would eat the remainder of the dog food in the bag.
Then he would eat me starting with my private parts just to get even with me
and I'd hope someone would rescue him before he ran out of food.
as for me who cares I'm dead

What is the worst way to be dead? Eaten by a cat or any other pet, be eaten by worms or any other bugs when buried in a hole in the ground, or be a pile of ashes in an urn or scattered somewhere? None of those sound very appealing.

^^^^ In the end, nothing matters. Our lives are short. The Earth will be enveloped by the dying sun in a few billion years. Our galaxy will collide with Adromeda in maybe four billion years and eventually the Milky way will no longer exist as an independent galaxy. the Universe will continue to expand over trillions of years until there is nothing but dark and cold and space, lots of space, with all suns and energy sources long depleted and gone.

But another Big Bang will create another Universe . . . and the cycle will begin all over again. I do wonder if we will have to relive our lives when that happens. I would like to make a few changes if that is to happen.

Is this what you meant?

I'm cat watching for my son. I've lost some skin petting his belly. With my resent heart problems it's not hard to keep one eye on the cat. I hope we can stand each other till September 11th. Uhoh 9-11 sounds ominous.

Personally, I would rather die alone and provide a good meal for my cat, than leave a partner with the horror of waking up next to a dead body.

Really? You do understand that the 'dead body' your partner woke up next to or across from or sitting by was not too long ago 'YOU'~

Horror?

Watch Zombie shows much? :eye roll:

A single woman friend has 5 cats. Another has 7. I'm sure their cats will outlive them - by a week or so.

I moved to a city where I didn't know anyone. Still don't know anyone outside of work. No kids. No family close. I kinda went off the grid. No telephone or cell phone. Then, there was a flood. Long story short, I now have a cell phone. People check up on me. I had to change my emergency contact to my siblings. Before the flood, it was the coroner..really. So, I might die alone...but it wouldn't be long before I'd be found....but, why would I care? I'm dead.

My mother had a fear of collapsing and not being found quickly enough. And that actually did happen though my dad was in the apartment. He didn't hear her and it was hours..

After reading many posts here, I feel funny when I ever think if I would be dead alone and what would happen afterwards?

I agree with some posters’ saying: When you are dead, you are dead. Why would you care about your body, or what would anyone think about you? And I like the humorous thoughts also.

Everything has a beginning and an end. People were born to this world, and when they get old and sick, cannot take care of themselves, and have to die, sooner or later, to yield space for the young people to live. That’s the nature of life.

It is very sad that so many people are living and thinking to kill themselves or thinking about the day they would have to die. And the day they are going to die, they try hard to cling to life, to want to live longer.

No matter one is religious or not, I find this youtube is very helpful to me when I am living: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KEMDepPRNY

I learn to think positively, to be mindful, to live by the moment, not to worry to much about tomorrow because when you worry too much, it still does not help; it just makes you crazy. I try to live each day to do useful things, to think of happy things; and if I die tomorrow, I won’t regret anything.

I wonder if we don't worry more about dying alone, then how long it takes for the body to be found. It is scary to think of the "I've fallen and can't get up" scenario where perhaps you can't get help and nobody realizes anything until it's too late.

Worrying is inevitable in most of everyone. But making a plan is better than worrying.

I like the idea in Post #16. If someone has medical problems and still wants to live alone at home, s/he can register with the Lifeline Medical Alert Systems. There are so many Medical Alert Systems out there. Someone will know you are in trouble right away when you press the button on the Medical Alert pendant.

Yeppers, or have a buddy system.
Like I am sure if I owned a cat it would walk next door, eat a neighbour

I don't eat animals
I'd find it hilariously ironic if I weren't dead, if I were to be eaten by one

That's why I fill my PJ pockets full of catnip!
I would be lucky if I were found within a week or two...wouldn't want them to starve.

dementia runs in my mother's family, apparently according to the only two members who made it that long. So, I figure I have 50% chance, and I hope I just fall down the stairs before that horror comes around. The Lifeline idea is good, I got it for my father his last year. He had a stroke on the couch and never set it off, so I had to find him, but still, its not a bad idea. If you don't pay the bill, someone'll come looking :)

maybe when I reach that inevitable age, i'll find the neighbor who commutes alone to work to check on me daily. When they find me mortis, a few pine tree air fresheners from the rearview mirror and they can use the carpool lane for, at least a week. After that, they might get caught, and the fine is....stiff.

Get a big cat food bowl and fill it.

That will buy your corpse a little extra time.

You're welcome in advance for the advice.
