The Hover Cat Conundrum – would it float or fall

Is it possible for a cat to hover in midair?

We all know that if you drop a piece of buttered toast it always lands butter side down. It’s also common knowledge that cats also have a self-righting mechanism. If they fall they always land on their feet.

This got me thinking; What would happen if you attached a piece of buttered toast to a cats back?

I have come to the conclusion that it would hover in midair! just imagine if this was scaled up, it could transform the way we travel. And, as a bonus, our cat would always be with us when we traveled.

There is, of course, a risk in performing this action. It does cavort with the laws of the universe. It’s not beyond the realms of reality that it could create a singularity. A wormhole would be created and our universe would disappear never to be seen again. I would then be really miffed as I would not be able to watch the rest of the new Star Trek series.

I’d like to point out that this is a thought experiment. No actual cats where buttered during this procedure. I am very well aware that my Mrs would neuter me with a rusty spoon if I was to harm any of our cats. You will also enjoy our Cartoon Cats Quiz Here
