Catism question of the day

So, little felines of the world, are there cats represented in Pink Floyd's song "Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict"? If so, is Pink Floyd's portrayal of cats uplifting to felines? But perhaps the most pressing question is whether or not cats can groove.

Other contenders for question of the day:
Will peacock feathers sprout if placed in water?
Has the real arc of the covenant been discovered in an ivy-covered house in Tulsa?

Well, why not? Sally Ride made it (decades before her fame) into "Mustang Sally." Similarly, there was a guy at my high school named Colin Tumy whom I've heard mentioned in Cyndi Laupers's song, "Time After Time."

It has been claimed that Felis silvestris catus would never associate with any of the various representatives of genus Rattus, who would most assuredly be among the "several species of small furry animals gathered together in a cave and grooving with a Pict". So I am inclined to say that based on previous studies, no, cats (if we are strictly discussing the domesticated variety) would not be represented in the aforementioned cave, grooving with the aforementioned Pict.

As for the other inqueries:
a) No, peacock feathers will not sprout when placed in water. Scientists are not permitted to employ their imaginations.
b) On the possible discovery of the True Ark, the claim has yet to be verified. As was brought up at last night's committee council, this "Ark" may simply be an antiquated iPod.

It cannot be the true Ark, but a very clever imposter. The true Ark has, among its LPs, Elton John's Madman Across the Water and Tom Waits's Closing Time.
