Cats head Zombie Apocalypse!

A number of conservationists claim cats are a zombie apocalypse for biodiversity that need to be removed from the outdoors by "any means necessary" – coded language for shooting, trapping and poisoning. Various media outlets have portrayed cats as murderous superpredators. Australia has even declared an official "war" against cats.

Moral panics emerge when people perceive an existential threat to themselves, society or the environment. When in the grip of a moral panic, the ability to think clearly and act responsibly is compromised. While the moral panic over cats arises from valid concerns over threats to native species, it obscures the real driver: humanity's exploitative treatment of the natural world. Crucially, errors of scientific reasoning also underwrite this false crisis

The scientist that is the drinking cat!

If you missed this story cats are even cleverer than you may think and have 'an innate understanding of fluid dynamics gravity and inertia.' The tip of the tongue hardly brushes the liquid and is rapidly pulled back this creates a pool of milk which the cat captures by shutting its mouth. The pool is a balance between gravity and inertia - now you know.
