Geology is Best With Kittehs!

Oh, I see what you’re up to, PZ. Your stealth attack, meant to divide my loyalties and my loves, was clever. Cats vs. Rocks! Declare rock the winner, and Dana and her cat-loving rock fiend friends will have no choice but to admit rocks are cooler than cats!

It was a nice try, my friend. Bravo. Well played. However, you were pwned before you posted.

Have you never heard of Geokittehs, sir?

The above Angular Unconformkitty is just one of many incisive posts showing that cats have a keen grasp of geologic principles. Geology and cats: two great tastes that go great together!

Spook doing geology

Spook doing geology with a lovely bit of bornite. This is a legitimate geologist thing. Tasting rocks is a very geologist thing to do.

And what’s the only thing better than cats + rocks? Cats that are rocks!

So, yeah, like I said, it was a valiant effort, but ultimately futile. Poor PZ. And your defeat does not end there: while you thought your own field of biology safe from kittehfication – alas for you, ’tis not so.

Cats and chemistry also combine. And cats have had the market cornered on physics since Schrodinger. Is it the physics cats that turned you off to kittehs in general? They can be assholes, admittedly.

Some of us think their general contempt for humanity makes them all the more awesome. But you know, biologist cats exist, and they have a lot in common with you. Professor.

Of course, it’s not just kittehs doing science. Goggies can teach chemistry, too (h/t)! They are soft and malleable and can be made to bond on demand.

But science, especially geology, will always be best with teh kittehs. Kittehs rock. This is why popularity contests between kittehs and rocks will always end in a draw.

Misha quite often spends time investigating the samples I bring back from the field.

    I have a geo-cat picture for you. Perhaps you can identify the formation. See email for more details!
