"Researchers discovered tiny magnetic particles of metal on the "wrists" of cats' fore and hind paws. These particles can be seen through a scanning electronic microscope only. Researchers from the Natural History Museum in Stockholm also discovered magnetic "bracelets" on legs of cats and other animals that are capable of finding a way back home rather easily (dogs for instance)."
No wonder cats and dogs fight like…well…cats 'n dogs. It's like tryin' to match the same ends of magnets. 'Course if those magnets are supposed to mesh with the magnetic stuff on earth to help fe-lyings and canines find their way home, how did this lamebrain get lost in a box?
Animal magnitism can be dangerous, tho', considerin' it can adhere a cat to an SUV.
"Curiosity didn't kill one cat on a wild ride on the New Jersey Turnpike. The kitten,…hitchhiked a ride on the underbelly of a sport utility vehicle just before Christmas. The gray and white feline traveled some 70 miles under the vehicle as it whizzed along the Turnpike on Dec. 23…
"The SUV's driver was traveling from Newark to Cherry Hill and didn't know she was giving the kitten a ride until another motorist saw the tabby through a wheel well and flagged the driver over near Interchange 4 in Mount Laurel.
"…[T]he cat probably climbed into the guts of the SUV in Newark and was asleep when the journey began. Somehow, the cat avoided being mangled by fan blades and other moving parts as he clung to the car for the ride."
Guess I better not discuss the fe-lyin' who was magnetically attracted to the exhaust pipe of AHM's car…
Yeah, cats can be pretty dumb. 'Specially those like this fe-lyin' Einstein who can't find his way down out of friggin' tree?!
"A cat stuck in a tree is searching for a way to get back on solid ground. Sabrina Elliott says her cat, Bijou, was frightened by a neighbor's dog and ran up a tree on Wednesday morning. Since that time, the cat has been climbing further up the tree.
"The cat's owner called the Wilmington Fire Department looking for help. They said they couldn't help because of liability issues. Bijou's owner began fashioning her own devices to rescue the cat, but so far has been unable to lure it out of the tree. Elliot is hoping someone with a large ladder will offer some help."
A large metal ladder should do the trick.
