Everyone knows how cats enjoy sitting on books, right? So my human was wondering if digital books would ever replace physical books — for cats. As an experiment, she placed her Kindle Fire and the handiest book (which happened to be the recently-reviewed Cats & Daughters) next to each other. Then she expected me and Binga to cooperate by showing our preference. As you can see, we were dubious about this.
Not to mention uncooperative. I saw no reason why I should sit on either of these things. After all, the book had been read already! Where’s the fun in sitting on it now?
Binga was even less inclined to help out my human with her experiment. The book and the Kindle Fire sat on the rug for days. Eventually my human charged the Kindle, since the battery died, hoping that maybe we would be attracted to its warmth. It did not work.
Just when it looked like the experiment was going to be an epic fail, I decided to give my human a break and make a choice. As you can see, I picked the old school, made-from-trees book.
Honestly, I am not sure what this was supposed to prove.
