Oh my God, someone please sterilize this woman just to be safe.
Ok, cats have to be the easiest animals in the world to ignore. You fill up a bathtub with water and leave the bag of food open and they'd survive. This idiot had her head so far up in her ass she couldn't remember when she went home last? I don't buy that one bit. It sounds more like an attempt to ignore the "problem" in the hopes that it'll go away. My cats are the worst little buggers I have ever had but I still feed and water them. I can't stand them most days but we still take care of them!
