Observations

Filed under: cats,quizzes — origamifreak @ 8:51 pm

Chris sent me this quiz today. I got 17 out of the 25 right.

Also, today Sunny turned 1. It’s kind-of strange to think that my spider-chomping little pest is exactly the same number of years younger than Miaumoto as I am to my closest sister Rose. We were both born when the older one was 15.

Somehow the age gap seems bigger between humans than between cats. Perhaps because the size and mentality are closer for cats? Perhaps because I’m a human, so I know exactly what it feels like, while I’ve never been a cat (not that I recall, anyway), so I don’t identify with their experience as closely?

  1. They scored me 21/25, but they repeated the canard about water going clockwise down the drain, so I claim 22/25.

  2. I got 16 right. But really–on which side do you adjust blinds?–who cares.

    Perhaps cat’s lives are less varied than ours, which makes them seem more similar despite their difference in ages.

  3. Yeah, I have to question some of their questions:

    My car has 4 lug nuts on its wheels, not five.
    Some blinds have the angle adjustment on the right.

    I happened to get those answers “right,” but on the other hand I have no excuse for selecting “hexagon” for stop signs…

    Perhaps cats’ lives SEEM less varied than ours? Perhaps in their worlds it is momentous to get a wet food treat, for example?
