Quantum Kitty

Don't let these poses of repose fool you. She's merely re-energizing. Once her energy meter reads full, quantum mechanics takes over.

This cat can be in two places at once when she reaches critical mass, or whatever it is that kicks her into overdrive.

We named her Freki, which is still an appropriate name, but lately we've been calling her Quantum Kitty for her eerie ability to be in the doorway of the next room and upstairs terrorizing the other cats, both at the same time.


For those not familiar with quantum physics, this ought to explain it:

Schrödinger’s Equation

The time-dependent equation in one dimension:

In three dimensions:

The time-independent equation:

A general form of the wave function:

The general wave equation:

I'm pretty sure my cat has this down.

Quantum physics mean freedom. The ability to be in two places at once, apparently.

Your cat is amazing. I'd love to borrow her one day.

Hi Cottage Smallholder!

Look around, she might be there too for all I know!

Intelligent and pretty, a devastating combination!

Hi Catofstripes!

And no truer words were ever spoken.

If we ever have a kitten in our future (and right now we have so many cats we might never need a new one) I've always thought it would be fun to call him Schrodinger.

Hi Laume!

Giggle! Schrodinger's cat!
