Cat in zero gravity


I have shown this video to several people. Some think it is funny. Others think it is just plain mean. You decide how you feel.

Either way, it is interesting how a cat reacts to zero gravity. Cats have the instinct to land on their feet, twisting themselves in mid-air to land paws first.

But what happens when there is no "down"?

Apparently this causes havoc with a cat's internal sensors, making them spin around in loops as they try to find which way to land.

If I were in space, where one small hole in my spacesuit could cause disaster, the last thing I would want in orbit with me...is a cat.

I did not make this video, nor did I post it on YouTube...so no hate e-mails please.
