Science is hard. That's a scientific fact. And if our teachers in high school used kittens to teach us about physics…well, we still wouldn't have learned anything but at least there would have been kittens in the classroom.
Speaking of kittens, have you seen this video of these Scottish Folds playing with a Newton's Cradle? They're learning about the physics of collision by doing what cats do best: batting objects around with their little paws and looking at stuff with confused expressions on their faces.
Meet Panda, Pikachu and Pavel, who are using Newton's Cradle to challenge themselves physically and mentally in order to become better versions of themselves so they can grow up to be more well-rounded cats. It definitely has nothing to do with the fact that Newton's Cradle has big, shiny balls that dangle and are just begging to be played with. That sentence felt gross to type.
Watch the Scottish Folds study physics in the video below:
