More kitty science!

Read a report of a very subtle experiment over on the excellent ‘Why Evolution is True’ blog. Before I tell you about, just a comment on the nonsense of needing a blog called that. Of course evolution is true. We kitties prove it, as the pinnacle of evolution.

Evolution of the human feline dynamic

Evolution of the human feline dynamic

It is impossible to imagine a creator who is superior to a cat, we must have evolved to such a state of magnificence. Nothing better than us exists.

Now, to the experiment – the description talked about the work of a clever child testing the effect of music on his cats. Of course, I can see the true experiment beneath the facade. Those clever kitties of science, Sasha and Sadie were testing just what they could make their human do! I’m sure that in no time at all, they will have him trained to play the music they do like and more importantly, provide belly rubs and ear scratches at the appropriate moments in the tune.

My science role model

Trying to decide who are the best role models for a modern science kitty are – am I more  gentleman-scientist, an overworked young researcher or a science-avenger? Ive got a minnion working up some looks for me, so watch this space. If you were a generally awesome, talented and underappreciated hero of our times science kitty, who would your role models be?

In seperate news, my experiment in giving penguins catnip was a success! Shall now be pushing nip around the animal kingdom to see who else it works on.

No two the same, so which one tastes like chicken?

Friday

White feathers are falling from the sky! Haven’t yet found the chicken feathers, but if so many fall, some must be from chicken. Especially as no two are the same.

When the feathers reach me, they become snowflakes. Am collecting different ones to see if I can find 100 different shapes in an hour. After looking at the different shapes, I think the rounder ones may have originated from chicken feathers, while the pointy shapes are probably from albino starlings.

Also forced to keep running indoors to warm my paws on someone and have my fur rubbed dry. No one appreciates the conditions a working scientist has to put up with.

Needed infinite monkeys at bargain rates

Monday

Crude diffraction grating has been moved to the back portal. No marked improvement in the quality of outside worlds, but assume if we use it an infinite number of times, we must find some good ones. Quite tiring going in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out. Infinite assistant lab monkeys would be very useful, but bossy kitten rejected my grant proposal.
