Everyone knows that cats are smart.
Just look at them! They’ve got a constant look on their face that says “I know something you don’t”. And usually they do.
As in “I know that I clawed your favorite couch to shreds five minutes ago and there’s nothing you can do about it.”
But did you know they’re basically physics majors?
OK, maybe not physics majors per se, but they still seem a lot more astute than many of my friends from college. Just take my word on that.
Now you must be wondering why I’m saying this. Am I being paid off by the big feline corporations to sing their praises?
Has a cat found embarrassing pictures of me from high school when I tried to grow out my hair like Jim Morrison and is forcing me to rant about how smart they are? Is this article being ghostwritten by a cat?
Well, none of those things are true. Except for the Jim Morrison hair, I’d rather not talk about it.
As it turns out, science has proven that cats have a basic understanding of physics.
A number of tests using metal balls and a box proved that they know a thing or two about the subject. Personally, I think the most interesting thing is that they didn’t just play with the box the whole time.
