Mr. Whiskers takes down Fido . . .
And as you die Fido, know that it was I who tipped over the trash can last week, leading the master to despise you. And now, he won’t even be saddened by your absence and I will warm his lap and receive his pettings uncontested! Mwreowhahahaha!
Ripped off from Daily Timewaster – with thanks.

Using only black ink, Malaysian illustrator Kamwei Fong has created a menagerie of playful black cats. Despite their contextual isolation and uniform style, each of Fong’s cats display unique personalities: some are fluffed and puffed into self-contained balls; others look with curiosity or wariness at fish that dangle or waves that crash from the animals’ own tails. The artist builds each feline form using innumerable short thin lines, varying the density of the marks to create volume as well as a palpable sense of furriness.

What am I sappy cat blogging, special edition

In the Rheology Bulletin, 83(2) July, 2014, M.A. Fardin from the University of Lyon conducted a study in which he explored the rheological nature of cats concluding that cats can be either liquid or solid depending on their container . . . as described in this excerpt.

FIG.1:(a) A cat appears as a solid material with a consistent shape rotating and bouncing, like Silly Putty on short timescales. We have De >>1 because the time of observation is under a second. (b)At longer timescales, a cat flows and fills an empty wineglass. In this case we have De <<1. In both cases, even if the samples are different, we can estimate the relaxation time to be in the range τ=1s to 1min. (c-d) For older cats, we can also introduce a characteristic time of expansion and distinguish between liquid (c) and gaseous (d) feline states.[(a)Courtesy of http://cat-bounce.com, (b) http://www.dweebist.com/2009/07/kitten-in-wine-glass/, (c) http://imgur.com/gallery/UuNSR, (d) http://imgur.com/s7JtV%5D
Rheology is, of course, the study of the flow of a material (in this case, cats).  The paper goes on the describe attributes such as the low affinity between cats and water surfaces, the spreading of a cat on a rough surface, and spontaneous rotation of a cat in cylindrical jar.
Fascinating.
