This forum must be dead if no one else has bumped what is certainly the most relevant cat/cycling article to ever hit the CN homepage.

Neither Susan nor Mew pounced on this article? :eek:

A cat invades the track at the Gent Six

The racing during the first night of the Gent Six was suspended briefly after a cat some how managed to get onto the track.

A video posted on YouTube by spectator Hugo Willems showed how the line of riders went close to hitting the cat before it jumped back into the stands. It was eventually captured by a spectator.

funny article with such nonsense conclusions. Quality research and journalism...

I love the 'strange situation' experiment example used to compare a pack animal versus an independent animal. Maybe they should try the same test using teenagers instead of small children and see the results.
On that comparison, should we conclude that cats are more mature or grown up than dogs?

The affection one was good - I now see our old cat in a completely different light. It rubbed itself against the coffee table just as much as it did our legs. What a hussy!!

And then comes the "environmental disaster" bit - this coming from a species that's responsible for the extinction of thousands of other species...

Then comes T. Gondii - the real reason for the crazy cat lady down the street!

Hi cat people. According to an article in USA Today, some researchers believe cats are closer to lions than any other cat. Just about any cat owner will agree that your cuddly little pet can also be a hunter, happy to kill birds, mice or any other small critter they can sink their claws and jaws into. Or put another way, your cat may be impulsive, neurotic, and even want to kill you. Meow!
