Have you seen this on Facebook yet? Or perhaps Twitter…even Pinterest? It’s a claim that if you take masking tape – – make a square on the floor with it – – then your cat will go in to it.
This thing has gone viral. And it was all started by a tweet from a Toronto woman a couple of weeks ago. Danielle Matheson is a freelance writer from Toronto, who (never in a million years) expected her tweet would make the internet lose its mind.
Does it work? For some people, the experiment has worked when they tried it. For others….not so much. Like my Facebook friend,Jessica. Last night, Jessica posted this:
So I tried that thing where you make a square on the floor (I used electrical tape) because of those posts I’d seen where cats tended to end up IN the square. Mine, notsomuch. None of them ended up sitting or standing in it but they did end up avoiding it and walking around it as though there was now something wrong with that part of the floor!
So, can we officially say it?? I think we just “busted” that internet myth! But, it is a lot of fun! Try it! – And (please!) share your results with us!
