image for Cat found alive after month in metal box: was Schrödinger wrong?

A cat has been found alive after being locked for over a month in a metal container. He was discovered by an electrician and reunited with his owner, who had almost given up hope of ever seeing him again.

His owner was amazed to find he was alive. "What's the probability of that?" she asked.

We put this question to Edwin Schrödinger the Austrian theoretical physicist, widely acclaimed as an expert in this area. In order to do this we traveled to his gravesite in Alpback, Austria, where he has been residing since 1961.

Unfortunately, without disinterment we were unable to establish whether he was alive or dead, so paradoxically we concluded that he was both. However he declined to answer our question, bringing in a degree of uncertainty.

We have suggested to the cat's owner that she may want to have him checked over by a vet.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
