Simon’s Cat Proves My Cat Gravitational TheoryPublished March 16, 2012
Dr. Hush Puppy, by Jo Singer
Simon's Cat proves in a video that all cats have a proclivity for knocking objects down... or are they simply studying gravity?
If you ask anyone sharing their home and heart with cats to describe what they most enjoy about living with their feline friends, almost every avid kitty lover will launch into an ad-infinitum session of cat bragging, raving about their kitty’s intelligence.
Since this cat-egory of cat servants spend lots of time studying their cats’ fascinating behavior, they will eagerly share all about their furry companions’ astronomical brains and their keen powers of observation, which of course is part and parcel of a feline’s makeup.
Speaking from my experience watching Dr. Hush Puppy, our lilac point Oriental Shorthair’s daily activities, my husband Marty and I have come to the conclusion, of which you may already be aware, that we have on our hands, a feline with an I.Q. that rivals that of the late Dr Albert Einstein’s.
You may wonder why I brag so shamelessly about Dr. Hush Puppy’s phenomenal intelligence and purrception, but over the past few years we have become increasingly aware of his insatiable interest in the forces of gravity. We are so certain about his amazing gift that if the brilliant scientific theorist, Sir Isaac Newton was still alive and continuing his work concerning the laws of universal gravitation, we know he would request Dr. Hush Puppy as his research assistant.
Since all cats seem to have a proclivity for knocking things off tables, the tops of refrigerators, or anything above the ground, Dr. Hush Puppy’s passion may not at first glance appear newsworthy. But as we have come to believe, this act itself means nothing; it’s the underlying motivation for the behavior which is important.
Take for example, the most recent Simon's Cat video. It features Simon’s Cat hurling objects off his mantelpiece with great delight.
While many folks may think the cat is being willful and naughty, I must wholeheartedly disagree with them. I suspect that Simon’s cat is most likely in cahoots with Dr. Hush Puppy, sending him a secret message that he concurs with our cat’s method proving Sir Newton’s hypothesis is correct; that all objects fall at the same speed.
So I beg of you to watch this short, delightful video uploaded to YouTube by simonscat, carefully watching for the signs that point in the direction to the facts to which I am alluding; Simon’s Cat’s thirst for knowledge.
Have you given any thought to the real reason your kitties knock things of tables? Share with a comment.
