If at first you don’t succeed, call your mom. She’ll probably know what to do.
Take it from this kitten, who could not figure out what a long, tubular plastic thingy (aka: a straw) was doing in a drink on a table at home, a Rumble video shows. Posted by user smcbuki, the video shows the sweet British Shorthair staring, then pawing delicately, at a blue straw sticking out from a canned beverage.
Kitty looks vexed while tentatively touching the plastic. After that, a little batting around occurs (this is like the cat version of the scientific method).
Still flummoxed, the kitten looks over at mom-cat on the sofa. Next, we see her on the table, bravely pulling the weird item in question, dropping it on the table and giving it her final batting around.
With her final approval, and utilization of empirical science (See? All the cat textbooks teach it), the mystery is fully solved. Be sure to remember this on Mother’s Day, kitten.
