Sciencekitty t-shirt

Do you keep losing your labnotes? If you had a wearble lab book, that wouldn’t happen! Sciencekitty’s very own minnion has created a t-shirt for me. Apparently he has some others that are pretty cool as well. It keeps me in nip.

Human Auditory Prompt

Saturday

Lab notes: Have recently noticed disturbing trend towards deafness in humans whilst in their bed. They definitely know I am there, but do not seem to hear my purrs or reasonable requests for food or access to the outdoors. Situation especially severe if the noise box in the corner of their room has not started beeping.

Hypothesis: humans needs trigger noises to become able to hear. Purring ineffectual, must test other sounds to find alternative to beeping box.

Test day 1: Urination in corner of room – extremely effective. Near instantaneous reaction to the sound and acknowledgement of my needs.

However, standard lab conditions jeopardised by washing of carpet and moving of furniture to deny access to my experimental area. Shall have to formulate alternate approach for tomorrow. Or maybe they will be more sensitised and respond to purring without additional prompts.

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

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.

Kittyfraction

Saturday

A strange slit has appeared in the living room. It clicks when I approach it, but is often propped open to allow me to pass through. Can only conclude that it is some form of crude diffraction grating. The aim must be to split cats into their fundamental colours, no one ever wants to take us tortoiseshells at face value. Reading into early experiments, diffraction work was first done with bird feathers. I approve. Will work on acquiring bird feathers and attempting to pass through them.
