A website of bouncing cats

by Matthew Cobb

While Jerry is busy in New College, Oxford, passing the dutchie from the left-hand side or whatever they do there, here’s a link to a website of bouncing cats, which appears to have been made by Tara Sinn.


Drag, drop and watch ’em bounce!

    Hmmm…most cats, if you tried to make them that bouncy, would instead get ouchy-bitey-scratchy….

    Dr Coyne, I loved that song when I was younger! I forgot all about it until now. Thanks for the memories…

    Haven’t had this much kinetic fun since I got to bang and drag and squeeze Bush Sr. around and thru the multi-sphere maze.

    You can toss the kittehs quite high, enough to where they don’t come down for a bit. My cat, Sarah watched for a while- didn’t seem to get the concept however. I was hoping she’d estimate where the virtual ceiling might be.

    It’s OK now, I gathered them up and put the whole bundle in the corner. They’re no longer landing on their heads but they do have the twitches.

    When it rains, there should be dogs as well.

    Errr, Matthew, you do remember what a “dutchie” is (or was, then)?
    While it’s entirely possible that there would be several dutchies in pockets at high table, it’s fairly unlikely that any would be passed around, to the left or to the right.
    Never having looked for a dutchie-passing site by aerial photography before, but these gardens have a useful-looking combination of not-very-transparent walls, long sight lines, and foliage to keep the snow off.
    “High” table. Fnarr. F. Narr!

    Sitting in London, the Prince of Wales, aka the Duke of Cornwall, was considering a voyage out to the Atlantic. But he couldn’t decide whether to go via the English Channel or the Bristol Channel.

    Settling for the former, he decided to pass the Duchy on the left-hand side.
