Ever wonder what a cat will do in zero G, so have I, and wonder no longer.

I just thought I would share this as I found it quite funny since I own cats.



The cat doesn't seem to know what to do and seems quite concerned about how to right itself.
And now on to cats and pigeons.




FYI there is also a video of Kate Upton in zero G as well just saying.

I thought that too. but there is no harm to the cat.I just had always wondered what type of reflexs a cat has to right itself in zero G. I'm sure with wall to wall carpeting they would cope nicely.

I wonder if the cat would get use to it over time?

Do a barrel roll!

No hurt intended , i love cats


I do not see cats fit for zero gravity, because a being have to be intelligent enough to counter the effects that come with the loss of weight with his body.

Interesting though , never seen this before.

Time for a cat to adjust to a micro G environment: 6 minutes.

Time for a dog to adjust to a micro G environment: ........................

I think there WAS harm done to the cat as it surely caused it to be frightened and confused. It was mean.

We cant really determine that it was mean unless we were able to see the cat afterward, what was mean was what happened to the dog on sputnic.
I'm sure if these cats were strays they would probably would have been given a home.

What is really mean to a cat is getting one without intending to give it a life long home, I am currently fostering 2 cats and also have a 16 year old cat as well who I saved as a kitten from certain death.

Yeah, I wasn't really happy with the way they had it set up for the cat either. There seemed to be too much risk of physical injury as well.

I also want to mention that some cats like to be vacuumed and some cats are absolutely terrified of them. I suppose the personality of the cat could be a factor as well.
I do understand your comment and felt it did seem cruel a little, but still I always wondered how a cat would react.

I also agree with you.

The dog seemed to handle it better emotionally than the cat; but then he wasn't THROWN like the cat was.
I think what they did to the cat was plain out mean too, as it was clearly in distress.

This is cruelty. Terrorizing helpless animals because you think it's funny? Oh wait, this is "research", right?

It's disgusting and the participants should be ashamed of themselves.

I have rescued and had cats for most of my life. It doesn't matter what their personalities are like. No cat is going to understand what is happening to them in zero gravity. It is alarming for them to suddenly lose control. It is frightening and confusing because they don't know what is happening to them and why they no longer have control. They would be freaked out if they are at all normal. So to me, it is mean to do such a thing to the poor cat.
