LOS ANGELES - A group of hungry cats began to eat their 86-year-old owner after she suffered an apparent stroke and couldn't get up for nearly a week, officials said Thursday.

Mae Lowrie, who lives with seven cats, was discovered unconscious and riddled with bite marks Wednesday night at her Panorama City apartment, Fire Department and hospital officials said.

No way. They were probably trying to wake her up. I know for a fact cats do that.

Nick Lowe once wrote a song about the true story of the former silent screen star who died in her NYC apartment and wasn't found for a few days, and in the meantime the dog got hungry.

The chorus:
"She was a winner
who became a doggie's dinner."
