Most, well... all, cats are not worth their weight in gold. Our sole remaining cat is not worth 3/4ths her weight in gold. Yet someone is still willing to trade Cats4Gold. I would believe they could crap, puke, and pee their own weight in gold, probably in just a month or two.
Then there's a cat who survived a 200 mile trip under the hood of a car. It nearly ended up in Cleveland. What a save!
