I love all creatures (except spiders of course)

...even cats.

I know many might find this cruel and perhaps it is but for some reason I can't stop giggling...just a little. lol

All in the name of science!


The archive footage shows that, like humans, cats lose coordination when first subjected to zero gravity moving in a straight line until they bump into something. Scientists from Nasa and the U.S Air Force sent both cats and pigeons flying in a C-131 jet on a trajectory that gave 15 seconds of weightlessness. Pigeons also lost their coordination with some filmed flying upside down.


The next logical step? Frogs of course...


Yup...still funny!

Peace

LOL
But seriously,poor cats!

I can't imagine them training them to become super cat soldiers, so why?

It is funny, but this video looks old.
Who was doing this with the cats?

You really got me curious (no pun intended).

The video says US Airforce, most likely using the Vomit Comet.

LOL That is very funny. Nothing like snorting at work!

The cats didn't look like they were freaking out to bad, to me, not as bad as the poor frog.

I just edited the OP.

Thanks dear Jude.

You know about the frog....that's probably what I'd look like if all of a sudden I started floating in air for no darn reason.
(I mean poor froggy doesn't get zero gravity yet.)

I like spiders.

No likey cats.
'Cept in Chinese food.

If cats had minds, I wonder what would be going through the ones in the video when they experienced zero G?

Dawwwww !

Zero G cats, pigeons and frogs? Im in!

In all seriousness though, the reason that this experiment was performed at all, is probably something to do with wanting to understand how physiological differences between species, might make a difference as to how well they adapt to the zero gravity environment. Those like the cats, who although totally flummoxed, did not appear to be close to having a seizure, would be better suited to adapting to alternative gravity circumstances than the frog, because clearly, the frog would just go absolutely bonkers and try and swim everywhere!

I have a cat, and love her, but you know what?

I think cats are scared of just about everything.

A dog would've loved this!

My late dog for example used to love swimming!
My cat? She nearly scratched my eyeball out when I tried to put her in the tub for a wash.

I remember in the T.V. series 'Cowboy Bebop' a character VT, had a cat named Zeros that lived just fine in a zero-gravity environment.

I wonder how the cats would fare if they had more time to get used to that environment.

I thought that this thread was going to be about the old saw of strapping toast and jam to a cat's back.
Since toast and jam always falls jam side down and cats always land on their feet, the jammed up cat will just spin in the air, and if you attach a generator to the cat's tail you will generate electricity using perpetual motion.

So many uses for a cat yet so little time...lol

They would fare just fine I bet.

I can see them, hanging out by the ceiling, waiting for unexpected people to walk in. Using the ceiling to push off, scratching the hell out your head, then pushing off your head, back to the ceiling, out of reach. And waiting for the next victim.

Yeah, that's about right.

Mine just uses the floor right now, for my legs. But I'm sure she would adapt quickly. And love every minute of it.
