I do love the Christmas Lecturers by The Royal Institution just after Christmas. I love the whiz and the bangs and the way that my brain wanders off to think of the subject that is being taught to eager young people.
So to that end, here is Toile’s and I tongue in cheek Christmas lecture.
In the autumn a friend of mine pointed out the cats loving circles phenomenon that was trending. I said I would give it a go and see what Toile thought about it. The premise was that cats love circles and will enter them, although no one knows the reason why.
So I made a circle out of bin bags.
Toile came over immediately.
And sat in the middle of it and sat and sat and sat until she must have had a very cold bottom, looked at me rather haughtily and stalked off. Toile has never had a circular bed, so we can take that out of the equation.
Next I made another circle out of circular knitting needles, I didn’t think this would work.
Toile immediately started to move.
Walked over to investigate.
And lay down in the middle of it. Mmmm, we have got something going on here.
Next I changed the circular needles to the floor.
Toile jumped down and stretched out again.
I decided to change material and just used a strip of fabric I had lying around.
By this time, Toile was enjoying the game and came over to examine what I was doing.
Jumped straight into the middle of it
and lay down.
And if this doesn’t prove that cats like circles, I don’t know what will. Why, is a completely different question.
