And here’s a video of the cats in action:


As of this moment, the Guardian art­icle fea­tur­ing the cat research is rated as ‘most read’ on the Guardian site. As ever, the com­ments con­tain plenty of trolling, idiocy, redund­ancy, mis­spelling, and the occa­sion­al sens­ible state­ment. Go, Web 2.0!


Peter Wedderburn, a vet blog­ging for the Telegraph, has this to say.


Under Scott Pack’s ongo­ing blog theme, “Is it just me or are all journ­al­ists shite?”, we can file this brief art­icle in the Independent. Not only does the journ­al­ist, Kate Proctor, get the sex of my girl­friend wrong, she mis-reads sev­er­al key facts.
