In the original movie “Alien,” a spaceship encounters an alien that latches on to one member’s face and then hatches into a terrifying alien monster that hunts the crew members down, one by one. While Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver, managed to survive, so did Jonesy the cat.

Now¬†author Rory Lucey has written a book “Jonesy: Nine Lives on the Nostromo” that details how Jonesy lived on the Nostromo and survived the alien while most of the human crew members did not. After reading this book, you’ll realize how clever a cat can be so the next time an alien tries to hunt you down, follow the cat. It just might save your life.
