This afternoon, Dennis and I read this very interesting article: Why do cats love chilling out in boxes so much? Scientists could have the answer
We already knew all four cats who currently own us have a strange affinity to cardboard boxes. But we’d never heard about the “Circle Theory” so we decided to conduct a controlled experiment with a couple of members of the herd (the two that weren’t sleeping) and set out a circle in the middle of the living room floor.
Zoom, not surprisingly, was first to inspect this new phenomenon.
And she was inside within, oh, about 2 seconds!
Once, Zoom had had enough, Emme needed to take a turn …
She seemed to be quite proud of herself and spent a much longer time just sitting there. Not once, however, would she look at the camera.
So our scientific experiment was a success! Two out of two cats at The View prefer the security given them by a simple circle of socks. And Emme is back in there now as I type …
But neither Dennis nor I ever expected our experiment would attract anything other than cats!
No animals were injured in this experiment. However, the Canada Goose behaved in a wooden manner.
