Because cats lack a hard collarbone that would otherwise prevent them from squeezing into nooks and crannies, they are able to squeeze into areas that appear narrower than they are.
Their bodies are no longer a barrier after they’ve gotten their heads and shoulders through.
To determine where they can glide through, they use their super-sensitive specialized whiskers, which are often as wide as their bodies.
Fat cats, on the other hand, don’t understand they can’t fit through since their whiskers don’t grow longer as they get fatter.
They will, of course, become stuck.
As a result, the owner of the lovely cat duo Maru and Hana recently conducted an experiment to see how small a gap cats could fit through.
This experiment is one of our favorites since it made us laugh. We also enjoy all cat science projects that demonstrate how adorable and amazing they are.
