A woman in Thailand found the body of a young kitten inside a foot-long sausage while eating dinner with her family.

Krod Yotchomrang, 52, told reporters that she bought some sausages from a local market, according to Bangkokpost.com. After consuming some of the sausage, she noticed "what looked like a small cat" inside, she stated. The kitten had eyes, a nose and even hair.

Yotchomrang determined that the kitten was good luck and she made a small shrine for it in her home, where neighbors and strangers have come to worship it. Some friends won money on the lottery afterwards.

Local police said Public Health officials had begun an investigation to find out if the local sausage maker was mixing cat meat with pork, or if it was an isolated incident.
