Lately, a youngsters’s science challenge with an fascinating premise went viral. Kaeden Henry, 12 years previous, determined to search out out if a cat’s anus (cat butt to the non-scientific) actually does contact the surfaces she sits on. So he performed the experiment with the assistance of some lipstick and a few cooperative cats. It helped that Kaeden’s mom has a PhD in animal conduct (with a feline focus!), and the cats are skilled to do a number of instructions together with sit. Effectively, my human has no diploma neither is she a sixth grader — however she does have some lipstick and I’m skilled. So she figured why not attempt to duplicate Kaeden’s outcomes?
Issues started going south nearly instantly.
The primary drawback was that I discover it essential to rub on the whole lot that’s held in my common neighborhood. Together with lipstick circumstances. That alone made it tough for my human to get a photograph of me with the unopened lipstick. She supposed to place among the lipstick on a cotton swab so she didn’t completely wreck the lipstick for this experiment. That’s the place the second drawback got here in.
Sadly, I used to be compelled to headbutt the loaded cotton swab… and obtained lipstick on my brow.
Undaunted, she figured she might take away the lipstick with the pet wipes… and one way or the other managed to make the issue worse!
You’d suppose she would have given up at this level, however noooo!
She figured that if she might simply swab the lipstick on my behind, we might proceed anyway. She didn’t rely on my being a bit squirmy, and I wound up with lipstick all over my pantaloons! I can assure that at this level, if I’d sat on something, I might have gotten lipstick throughout it.
This was when my human lastly admitted defeat. She cleaned the lipstick off me the very best she might. She obtained most of it, but it surely took a full tub a few days later to wash me up utterly.
After all I needed to work on it too.
For her lipstick on a cat challenge, I give my human an F-. Kaeden, in case you’re questioning, obtained an A+, and he found that longhaired cats’ butts don’t really contact the surfaces they sit on, however that shorthaired cats’ would possibly on gentle surfaces. You can see the whole project on a Facebook post his mom did.
