Scientific Experiments

It's Friday - the day Carlton takes over my blog. Views are his own and not necessarily, in fact, rarely, shared by the blog owner.

Carlton The Scientist

by Carlton Cat

TODAY, in order to increase the sum of human knowledge, I have been investigating the effects of gravity on random objects.

The results of my experiments:

Coffee mug. Will break. Effect: Liquid content will spread and stain pale rug. Secondary effect: The Mrs will scream and rush to get the carpet cleaner.

Jar of jam/jelly. Will break. Effect: Floor becomes sticky. Very sticky. Secondary effect: If anyone (*looks innocent) walks through it they will leave jammy footprints all over the house.

My friend is caught in the act - note contrite expression.

Newspaper. Will fall apart. Effect: The Mr will bundle it back together again while swearing. Quite loudly. Secondary effect: The Mr will start reading an article and become very confused  because he's got the pages in the wrong order.

Glass bowls. Will break. Effect: The Mrs will be upset because it was a gift from Aunt Maud. Secondary effect: Mr will do a fist pump because he's always hated it.

Pillow. Will fall and look very inviting. Too inviting. Effect: Zzzzzzzz.Secondary effect: Zzzzzzzz.

I'm thinking of changing my name to Einstein.

  1. Dang, I will have to try some experimenting here!

  2. And that kitty looks so innocent. I'm sure you must be mistaken...

  3. *taking notes* Thanks for sharing your findings, though we may need a more thorough investigation on that jam jar experiment.

  4. This sounds like the experiments that babies do.

  5. Very clever experiments and conclusions Carlton.

  6. Very good work. We agree wholeheartedly with your conclusions.

  7. Too bad folks no longer build houses out of playing cards. I'm told their destruction with the swipe of a paw can really excite the silly humans. Be well!

  8. It been many years since we had a cat but your post evoked memories of similar incidents. Another party trick our moggy had was to swing from our net curtains using only one paw - what an athlete!

  9. Your conclusions were fascinating.


Thank you for your commenting; it's purrfect.
