More on Isaac Newton and Human Behaviour

More on Isaac Newton (previous post: Did you know that Sir Isaac Newton had a cat called Diamond? Lynettea heard it on a radio quiz show. He invented the cat flap, which is apparently his chief claim to fame.)

Lynettea tells me I am WRONG about Isaac Newton. His main claim to fame was not inventing the cat flap, but in failing to catch the apple when it fell from the tree. Now, that makes some sense. Who would want to catch an apple anyway. They don't even smell nice. I have seen Lynettea eating them UUGH!
What cat in their right mind would go out in a boat to save huge wet lumpy animals (whales), even if they had the most charming personalities in the world. The cats might get WET! Apparently some of these humans took shelter behind an iceberg by roping it to the boat to keep out of the wind. Lynettea was most impressed.
Just a note: Lynettea is surprised I have so many views.

That behavior sounds very strange indeed!

Diamond said...

Hello Icon, yes it is strange. Lynettea read about it in the newspaper.

I certainly count the cat flap as Isaac Newton's most important invention. Who cares that he invented gravity? My life would not be the same without my cat flap. Cat flaps were a revolution in feline freedom. Viva la revolution!

Hi Diamond. Yes, those beans can be very strange. ooo you got tagged! Cool, it is a fun game.
I for one am surprised that Lynettea is surprised you have so many views. After all, we are kitties. That makes us opinionated and right! And, of course, just adorable.

thank you kitties for all your comments. It is nice to have something to chat about with cats from elsewhere. Being an only cat I sometimes need more than human company.
