Cat Survives Dumping Over Bridge Sometime when you're surfing the internet, look up the lyrics of "The Cat Came Back." The song about a cat that refused to die may be of interest to the person who committed an act of animal cruelty in Montana. Somebody put a cat inside a case along with a 16-lb. rock and tossed it off a bridge, where it landed on the frozen river and didn't break through. The cat is fine. Firefighters fed it leftover Christmas turkey, and one of them took it home.
