The Gravity-Free Zone


Buddy heer to talk abowt the mystery of the Gravity-Free Zone. We all know that efurry howse has at leest one GFZ. I have made it my life's work to find as many GFZs as I can. However, the only time I appear to get close, I am thwarted by mom bean!

Just the other nite, I wated 'til she was sleeping so that I cood continyoo my reserch. I went up on the dresser, witch was a pretty high jump. If seven cats stood on top of each other's baks, that's abowt how high it was. [Miss Millie has come up with a unit of mezure called a Gizzy, but I don't kno how that werks for hight. Maybe she will come by and tell us.]

Anyways...there I was...perched on top of the dresser...testing to see if the Gravity-Free Zone in Ant Ree's howse is in my mom's sleepy room. I carefully placed my paw aganst several objects and pooshed them to see if they wood fall down to the flore or if they wood float, therefor identifying the GFZ.

Pink hairclip - fell to the flore.

Little bag of Chrismiss stripy candies - fell to the flore.

Silver ring mom wares on her finger - fell to the flore and landed on the bag of Chrismiss candies, waking mom up.

Well, my concloosion is that mom was not as asleep as I thot she was 'cos she kept sayiing "Buddy cut that owt!" or "Buddy stop that". Then she got up and pikked me up off the dresser and made me get on the bed and have snuggles and pettings. And that was the end of my speriment 'cos I fell asleep.

I'll try agane. Heer is a piksher of wen I tryd to fly into the GFZ in owr old townhowse.

Buddy, I love that picture of you flying in your old house! We don't have a door like that here, otherwise I would try that myself.

You really have me thinking -- how high is high? I'm gonna have to figure that out. I will let you know.

You look like you are just floating there in your GRZ.

Munchkin, Missy and Monte said...

Wow, I always thought that cats could fly, now I know for certain.
Monte and Munchkin are always trying to find the GFZ around our dining table.

Buddy -

That GFZ thing really works when you want the humans to get up and feed you!

Love the picture of you on the window.

Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

Wow!! Great GFZ picture. I agree with you, I mean, who else is going to test out these zones? Of course only us cats. Sigh, while the humans sleep we are fast at work. Then they yell at us for doing our jobs.

Excellent work! I can tell you that our GFZ is not near the tall bookcase in the livingroom, nor is it anywhere near the shelves attached to the opposite wall. I'll let you know when I find it.

Buddy you are doing very important research. We now bestow on you a honorary doctorate, so from now on you should be known as Dr. Buddy (pHd).

Lux said...

That's an amazing picture of when you were trying to fly into the GFZ. You're a really smart cat, I'll say that.

Patches & Mittens said...

This is a very interesting concept!

Dr. Buddy, we're gonna nominate you for the NobelCat Prize! Wish we could get free of gravity over here, but we're too fat.

Howefurr did yoo do that Buddy? We want to fly like yoo. Is it like teleporting?

Buddy, I fink you should report this important discovery to the Cat Blogosphere. So many cats are thwarted in their research attempts! Poor Victor had a similar experience just this morning on top of the Mom's dresser. He's considering a possible correlation between GFZs and bathroom counters.

The Mom, on the other paw, believes there are areas of increased gravity that pull previously elevated things to the floor.
