BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. — A Virginia woman recently decided to play the lottery on a whim. She was up late and purchased a ticket online.

Then, when Robin Meador realized how much she had just won, she wasn't able to celebrate with anyone. Any human that is.

“Everyone else was asleep,” she told lottery officials. “So I had no one to share it with except my cat!”

Meador had reason to celebrate as she won over $300,000, without even leaving her house, or choosing numbers.

The Blue Ridge woman matched all five numbers in the February 21 Cash 5 with EZ Match drawing to win the jackpot.
