If cats were scientists

If cats were scientists—biologists, say—they’d be very patient scientists. They’d keep a clean bench—cleanliness is next to felis, after all—and they’d be very careful as they filled beakers and centrifuged things and ran blots and cared for their cell cultures and everything.

They’d be great scientists, I think. Until they knocked everything to the floor and chased it and bit it.
