According to the Associated Press, a shelter cat named Andrea survived multiple gassings from the West Valley City animal shelter in Utah. The cat had been adopted less than 30 days before when shelter officials made the decision to put Andrea down.
But this cat was resilient; after the decision was made to put Andrea to death by the shelter's gas chamber, the cat came out alive. So they gassed her again, thinking there could be no way she could come out on top.
After the procedure was finished, they found no vital signs, and put the cat on ice, proclaiming her dead. But when they went back to re-examine her body, they found that, remarkably, the cat was still alive!
Finding Andrea to be a true fighter, the shelter finally decided it'd be a good idea to stop trying to kill her. Andrea has since been adopted out, and is currently settling in to her new home.
