Take about half a million cats, put them into a suitably sized sealed box, introduce the usual apparatus for either killing them or not killing them, and come back in about 5000 years to see which proportion of them are alive.

       // about half a million cats //   

       Sp."at least a million cats".   

       But why so few ... ?

       I have secretly obtained video of 8th of 7 dressed as a cat lapping up a saucer of milk. This is actually a fearful spectacle.

       I wonder if there's an actual trade newspaper for the business of counterfeit items?

       How do you know you're not buying a cheap unofficial knock-off copy of those?

       Out of interest, where did Werner Heisenberg get his cat ? It couldn't have been from professor Schrödinger, shirley ?   

       Maybe there's some uncertainty there ...

       Well, it is a quantum cat.
Probably.

       //"Fake news ! "//Saying that is proof enough for everyone here. I'd advise some grooming of those whiskers. Your secret is out. May as well try and attract a suitable Tom Cat before you dry out completely. ha

       All unbidden, the notion of [JHC] as a tomcat springs to mind.

       // a suitable Tom Cat //   

       Oooh, yes, we like the F-14 VERY much ...

       // come back in about 5000 years to see which proportion of them are alive. //   

       I may be going out on a limb here, but I would predict 0%.
