Saturday Science: Cat Static

Yukon the cat

Yukon doesn’t understand laptops

Today’s science post was inspired by Yukon the cat. Yukon doesn’t understand laptops – or perhaps it’s that she doesn’t want to understand. Spending all this time with a useless box is beyond absurd – what’s the point of a box if you can’t sit in it? And even though she can’t talk, she has her ways of making her opinions known.

So today’s Saturday Science has to do with cats and static.  Have you ever stroked a cat’s fur in the dark, and seen sparks?  Cat Static* will tell you why! Thanks to our friends at Little Shop of Physics for today’s experiment!

* Yukon wants to tell you not to make a cat do this experiment if they don’t want to!
